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.

Sign up for a team

Current teams are listed below. If you would like to join one of the teams listed, please email Rhonda and let her know. We will send you sample letters to help you raise funds.

What Makes a Team?

We are currently hoping to resume in-person team Birdathon. But we will still allow and encourage teams with multiple people to bird in different/individual locations if that makes you more comfortable. 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.
