April Is Golden Gate Audubon Birdathon 2012!

Birdathon 2012 is a uniquely Audubon way to promote and protect the Bay Area’s native birds and wildlife–it’s like a walk-a-thon, only we count beautiful bird species instead of miles. Birdathon 2012 is a competitive and educational event suitable for any level of birdwatcher, from beginner to advanced, as well as those who just want to cheer them on! Participants join guided trips, organize their own trips, or count independently. They raise money by asking friends and family to pledge a donation to Golden Gate Audubon on a fixed or per species basis. Then, over a period of either 4 or 24 consecutive hours between April 1 and April 30, participants try to see as many species as possible. After birding, participants collect their pledges. Birdathon 2012 is an opportunity to learn about birds, make new friends, and enjoy the wealth of the Bay Area’s great outdoors. The event generates important funds for Golden Gate Audubon–we raised $28,000 in 2011! In April, you’ll find trips for kids and adults, for families and social groups, and for folks with special interests, such as birding by bike or by public transit. Read more about How Birdathon Works.

  • Participate as an individual register here.
