Located at the head of the Yahara chain of lakes, Cherokee Marsh is Dane County's largest wetland. On Friday, May 15 (originally scheduled for May 8), the Cherokee Marshbirds team will be birding at Cherokee Marsh and nearby locations with a goal of finding 100 species. Team members will bird individually or with household members in different locations on land and water.
Please consider making a donation to our Cherokee Marshbirds team. Half of your donation will go to the Cherokee Marsh Conservation Fund, and the other half will go toward great bird conservation projects like those listed below. No amount is too small--even small contributions add up.
This year the Great Wisconsin Birdathon aims to raise $100,000 for bird conservation in Wisconsin. Your contribution supports these priority projects of the Bird Protection Fund:
Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers, Whooping Cranes, and Piping Plovers
Research, education, and habitat protection in Central and South America
Monitoring of waterbirds
Community engagement and habitat protection through Bird City Wisconsin
The Great Wisconsin Birdathon has raised over $500,000 for Wisconsin's birds since 2012. We have done so much, but there is still so much more to do. Thank you for joining us in making a sustainable future for Wisconsin's birds!
