Welcome to the Funky Pheasant's Great Wisconsin Birdathon fundraising page!

 

This team was started by employees of Pheasants Forever in Wisconsin.  We've always loved birds, and believe they're important to us in many ways. That's one of the reasons we work for Pheasants Forever, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and policy.  We want to help ensure that birds who spend all or part of the year in Wisconsin have all the resources they need to survive and thrive.

 

To raise support and awareness for Wisconsin's birds, we've joined this walkathon-style fundraiser in which we will try to find as many bird species as possible on a single day, May 30th. Since our team is located throughout Wisconsin, we'll each be able to visit our favorite natural areas and public lands to see where the birds migrating this spring are located. We will be sure to provide our results to everyone!

Please consider supporting us with a pledge per species or donation. No amount is too small--even small contributions add up! Donations collected will be split between the Wisconsin Pheasants Forever - Habitat Fund and the  Bird Protection Fund, a partnership of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin DNR and Wisconsin Bird Conservation Partnership to support the highest priority conservation needs of birds in the state.

 

Our goal is to raise $2,000 and when we reach that goal, our team co-founders will do a coordinated Funky Chicken dance to celebrate! We will record it and share on our Wisconsin Pheasants Forever Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/pheasantsforeverwisconsin/.  

 

Together we can support:

  • Creation of sustainable songbird habitat within Wisconsin's agricultural landscape.
  • Habitat enhancements for grassland and wetland nesting bird habitat. 
  • Monitoring of waterbirds. 
  • Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers, Whooping Cranes, and Piping Plovers.

Thank you for joining us in making a sustainable future for Wisconsin's birds!
