Great Wisconsin Birdathon 2018
Please note: donations are not being accepted by this participant at this time.

Goal $300.00


For three years, beginning in 2015, Raymond Jay formed a Birdathon team called K.A.M.O. Rusk County, to benefit Kids and Mentors Outdoors. Ray believed in nature as a classroom, and service learning, and he loved birds, especially the Black-capped Chickadee. Ray passed away this Spring, and in his honor we have formed the Ray Jay Birdathon team.

We will hold a Birdathon event on May 26 at the Flambeau Mine site, with a cookout and bird walks where we will try to find as many bird species as possible. We aim to find 50 bird species and raise $300. Half the funds we raise will go toward the projects of the Bird Protection Fund, and the other half will support environemental education at Power House Youth Center in Ladysmith, WI. Members of the youth center will join the Birdathon, and everyone is welcome to attend. Contact Captain Donna Wishowski at for more information.

We hope you will support  the Ray Jay Birdathon team with a pledge or donation. No amount is too small--small contributions add up!

The Bird Protection Fund projects that half your donation will support include:

  • Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers and Whooping Cranes;
  • Research, education, and habitat protection in Costa Rica and Peru;
  • Monitoring of shorebirds, waterbirds, and waterfowl on Lake Michigan and in east-central Wisconsin;
  • Community engagement and habitat protection through Bird City Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Stopover Initiative;
  • The Wisconsin Bird Monitoring Program and Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II.

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