This year marks our 20th consecutive year participating in the Great Canadian Birdathon ( formerly the Baillie Birdathon ), the oldest sponsored bird count in North America, raising money for bird research and bird conservation. As usual, I am participating on a team with my sons, Ken and Mike, and my wife, Carol. Over the 20 years, we have raised in excess of $25 000 and are looking forward to adding to that total this year. As usual, we will complete this feat in the Point Pelee National Park and environs during the week of May 2 to 10.
If you pledge support to this endeavor, all of the money raised will go to bird conservation in Canada; a portion goes to Bird Studies Canada and the rest to Waterloo Region Nature. Simply click “Give Now” on our Birdathon page to make a donation or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I am also happy to accept per species or other creative pledges. We usually see 130 to 150 species during our Birdathon.
Yours in conservation,
