Birdathon is one of our major fundraisers. It is similar to a walkathon or marathon where participants
raise money for Denver Audubon by birding (not
walking or running, whew!).
Proceeds fund school, family, and conservation programs.
There are three ways to participate:
Form a team
Organize a team of people who can all bird on the same day during May (it doesn’t matter what day in May, you pick). Before your team’s day, collect pledges from sponsors: friends, family, coworkers, anyone! Count the number of bird species the entire 24 hours of your team’s day! To register a new team, fill out this form.
Support a team
Just click on any one of the donate links below to support your preferred team. If you don’t want to donate online, please mail a check to us at 9308 S. Wadsworth Blvd. Littleton, CO 80128.
What about social distancing?
We anticipate that even if Colorado’s stay-home order is lifted by May, limitations to group outings may still be imposed. As such, teams with multiple people can bird in different/individual locations. A team can consist of a single person or a single family. You don’t need to go anywhere, birding in your backyard is perfectly fine.
