Ways to Help

2018 Audubon Rockies Birdathon

We’re celebrating spring with a regional BIRDATHON!  With the support of people like you – our Birdathon sponsors – the Birdathon will allow us to continue expanding our award-winning education programs. 

Here’s how it works: On May 21st, Community Naturalist Zach Hutchinson will race against the clock to tally as many bird species as possible within 24 hours. When finished, we’ll combine our species lists to calculate our total species count, hopefully over 150! For each species we find, donors like you can pledge to donate a certain amount beforehand.

Funds raised will support our Community Naturalist program, which brings science-based education, teacher trainings, and citizen science projects to people of all ages across Wyoming and Colorado. By providing opportunities for students, teachers, and families to get outdoors and experience their local ecosystems, we’re helping them develop a deeper understanding of the natural world and empowering them to conserve it. 

To pledge your support, you can email John Kloster-Prew at jklosterprew@audubon.org or complete and mail the form below to 116 N. College Ave, Fort Collins, CO 80524. Once the Birdathon is complete, we’ll send you a report of all the birds we observed. We’re grateful for whatever amount you can pledge. The more you can give, the more resources we’ll have to continue our education programs and protect birds and their habitat across Wyoming and Colorado. Email Zach at zhutchinson@audubon.org with any questions.
