Thank you for joining The Goss Hawks in our goal to raise money for bird conservation! 

As a participating organization, 50% of the funds we raise comes back to local causes. This year we are teaming up with Waukesha County Parks and Land Use in funding their reforestation project. The money we raise will help to buy trees and materials, which will ultimately create more habitat for wildlife. 

We have identified 15 parks and greeways where we will survey birds as part of the birdathon. This data will then be submitted to the Waukesha conservation biologist and be incorporated into their program to determine how to manage the properties. 

Parks

Menomonee Park          Minooka Park

Please consider supporting us with a pledge or donation. No amount is too small - every contribution adds up! In 2017, our club raised over $1,300, and we hope to repeat that again in 2019. Statewide, the Great Wisconsin Birdathon aims to raise $90,000 in 2019! 

Along with our local projects, the money we raise will also go to bird conservation and research throughout Wisconsin. Your contribution supports the priority projects of the Bird Protection Fund, including:

  • Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers, Whooping Cranes, and Piping Plovers;
  • Research, education, and habitat protection in Central and South America;
  • Monitoring of shorebirds, waterbirds, endangered terns;
  • Community engagement and habitat protection through Bird City Wisconsin;
  • The Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II.

The Great Wisconsin Birdathon has raised over $400,000 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!
