Great Wisconsin Birdathon 2019

Goal $500.00


Welcome to our Great Wisconsin Birdathon fundraising page! Part of MNP's land restoration goal is to provide a variety of habitat types for a variety of bird species. We understand that supporting birds at MNP cannot be the whole effort and thats why we support bird projects all over Wisconsin!

We believe birds important to us in many ways. And 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, MNP has joined this walkathon-style fundraiser in which anyone interested (novice or expert) will try to find as many bird species as possible at MNP on May 5th during a morning and/or evening hikes.

Morning: 8-9:30AM with Dan Panetti (Wild Birds Unlimited, Mequon)

Evening: 5:30-7PM with Dr. Philip Arnholdt (Professor at Concordia University - WI)

*** BOTH HIKES WILL BEGIN AT MNP'S SWAN ROAD PARKING LOT (1/4 mile north of County Line Road, on the east side of Swan Road)***

Please consider supporting MNP and bird conservation with a pledge or donation. No amount is too small--even small contributions add up! This year the Great Wisconsin Birdathon aims to raise $90,000 for bird conservation and research in Wisconsin. Your contribution supports the priority projects of the Bird Protection Fund, including:

  • 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.

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!
