Goal

Welcome to my Great Wisconsin Birdathon fundraising page for the Magnificent Maywood Merlins. I've always loved birds, and believe they're important to us in many ways. I 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, I've joined this walkathon-style fundraiser in which my teammates and I will try to find as many bird species as possible on a single day between April 15 and October 15. We'll visit our favorite Wisconsin natural area--Maywood, find the birds that live there, and share our love of birds with the community.

Please consider supporting me with a pledge per species or donation. 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 the 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 Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II

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 me in making a sustainable future for Wisconsin's birds! Half of the TOTAL donations for THIS team will go DIRECTLY to Maywood to jumpstart new birding initiations for 2021. Help US help Maywood by seeking donations and having fun birding with fellow bird lovers. Our day to bird will be Sunday October 4, 2020 at Maywood starting at 8am. Prizes and snacks will be provided by your Team Captain.

 

Thank you!
