Join the Great Wisconsin Birdathon

Do you like watching birds? How about supporting conservation?

Then sign up for the Great Wisconsin Birdathon.

The Birdathon is like a walkathon with binoculars and a bird book. Participants raise money and then spend one day bird watching between April 15 and June 15. Half of the money raised goes to a local group of your choice and the other half goes to the Natural Resources Foundation, a group that provides significant support for Bird City Wisconsin. They have already created a team for every Bird City community – now all birders have to do is join it.

Last year’s top Bird City team was the Muirland Merlins (Marquette County) who raised an outstanding $1,317. Overall, the 2015 Birdathon raised $57,000. The goal for 2016 is $70,000.
