Welcome to The Reckless Wrens' team fundraising page!  This is our 7th Great Wisconsin Birdathon to raise support and awareness for Wisconsin's birds.  We love birds, and believe they're important to us in many ways. 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 awarenss for Wisconsin's birds, we've joined this walkathon-style fundraiser in which we will try to find as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period. We'll visit Goose Pond and other Madison Audubon properties in Columbia County (and some local hotspots), and share our love of birds with the community.  We hit the field the evening of May 22nd and during the day on May 23rd.  Even though it was later in the migration and very windy, we still managed to spot 92 species.

Please consider supporting us 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. Half of your contribution will support Madison Audubon Society and half supports the priority projects of the Bird Protection Fund, including:

  • Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers, Whooping Cranes, Piping Plovers, and endangered terns;
  • The Neotropical Flyways Project;
  • Lake Michigan Waterbird Research;
  • 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 us in making a sustainable future for Wisconsin's birds!
