Eastside Audubon’s Birdathon

Join us for our most rewarding fundraiser of the year, Birdathon! Count birds as a team, attend a birding trip, or make a donation to support our chapter’s conservation, education, and advocacy work. Whether you are just getting started or an avid birder, everyone can make a difference for birds this year by taking part in this exciting event. Flock with us this May!

What is Birdathon?

Birdathon is like a walkathon, a bike-a-thon, or dance-a-thon. It’s a way to put the fun in fundraising by getting lots of people excited about conservation. Like a walkathon, participants gather pledges from friends, family, work colleagues, and others who want to help Eastside Audubon keep providing the great programs we offer the community. Instead of getting a pledge of $1.00 per mile walked, bird enthusiasts ask for a pledge for each bird seen by a person or team. Audubon chapters all over the country hold this entertaining and creative event during the month of May.
