SCVAS Spring Birdathon March 26 – May 1

Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society logo

Each spring our local Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society holds their most important fundraiser know as the Spring Birdathon. To participate you can form your own Self-Guided team or join one of the already prearranged Guided Teams. The goal of a Birdathon is for you to get folks to support your efforts and gather pledges ahead of time and then you go out and count or photograph bird species within the Spring Birdathon window from March 26 – May 1. You can count up to four hours, or go out the entire day.

Our own Lisa Myers has been leading team “Persistent Picidaes” for many years. She welcomes your support if you would like to sponsor the team, or you are welcome to join the Picidaes on Saturday, April 8 when they will bird in Los Gatos from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Visit www.scvas.org to learn more about this year's event.
