Bird like crazy in Westchester County to raise money for our chapter.
We cancelled our field trips and programs - BUT not the BIRD-A-THON!
We will still hold our yearly fundraiser, but with social distancing.
Instead of teams trying to find as many bird species in a day - it will now be individuals, couples, or families birding BOTH Westchester and the Bronx. This will give our Bronx members who wish to participate an opportunity bird from their yard or local park if they do not wish to venture too far.
We will compile everyone's list at the end of the day, on Saturday May 16. Email your list to email@example.com. People can bird from 5 PM Friday to 5 PM Saturday.
You can participate in either of two ways; bird like crazy on the 16th, or make a pledge today!
A BIRD-A-THON is like a walk-a-thon, bike-a-thon or any other "thon" in that we ask people to pledge X amount of money per lap, mile, or as in our case, bird species seen, within a 24 hour period. We will have bird watchers, keeping social distancing, roaming Westchester and Bronx County to find as many birds as possible. The combined list for the teams should be between 100 to 150 species. Pledges can be given for a flat rate such as $25.00 or you can pledge per species such as 25 cents/bird. If we see 120 species your pledge will come to $30.00. We will send out reminders after the bird-a-thon on how much you pledged.
Thank you for your generous support!

Ken spent over two and half years walking every acre of Central
Park in order to map its many trails, highlight its stunning
architecture and landscape features, and most importantly, locate
and identify thousands of its magnificent trees. The result was
“Central Park Entire,” a profusely illustrated map detailing
the park’s varied topography and featuring the location and
identification of nearly 20,000 trees and shrubs.
