Big Sur Center
Ventana Wildlife Society's banding lab is a long-term bird conservation research facility in Big Sur, California. The Birdathon has successfully been an annual fundraiser since 1992!
A Birdathon is similar to a walk-a-thon, where individuals/teams count the total number of bird species seen in one 24-hour period. Each counter collects pledges from friends, relatives, neighbors, businesses, and/or corporations for either a per-bird-species pledge or a one-time donation for all the birds that you count in that one 24-hour period any time before June 15, 2008. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the community and to support Vetana Wildlife Society.
Pledging Your Support
If counting birds and collecting pledges isn't your cup of tea, you can participate by PLEDGING to Ventana Wildlife Society's Team. The VWS staff, board of directors, family members, and interns will head out on June 21 and bird in a few different locations. We will be trying to spot as many different bird species as possible. The diverse teams range from expert life birders to “never before been listening for let alone know what one is” birders. The day should promise to be exciting, enlightening, and fascinating. Your support in any way is greatly appreciated!
