This spring Menunkatuck Audubon is celebrating the 29th anniversary of its spring birding extravaganza. Birdathon is like a walkathon, only instead of walking, we go birding and gather pledges per species seen.
Fundraiser for Menunkatuck Scholarships
Menunkatuck Audubon has started a new scholarship program for students. All funds raised during the Birdathon will be used to support the scholarships. This year we budgeted $1000 for a scholarship. The students from whom we received applications were so outstanding that we decided to make three awards. In order to be able to support scholarships in the future including college scholarships and scholarships for high school students to attend Hog Island Audubon camps, we’ve established Birdathon as a separate funding source. Our goal is to be able to award at least two college scholarships and one Hog Island scholarship each year. Your support of the Menunkatuck Birdathon will make that possible.
This year we are doing something different. Instead of a one day Birdathon, we’re stretching it out to a month, from April 21 to May 20. And we are offering you a number of ways to participate.
