Every year in late May, WPBO staff and volunteers host a fundraising event called Birdathon. On the day of Birdathon, teams head out to find and count as many bird species as possible. Supporters of WPBO can pledge to donate based on the number of species the WPBO team can find during Birdathon, or pledge a fixed amount to support the event.
Hosting Birdathon is a fun way to raise funds for research at the Point, and you can support Birdathon by donating online. From the Michigan Audubon – Donate page, specify your donation amount on the first page. Next, on the second page of the donation form, there is a description box where you can specify “Birdathon” to ensure funds raised go directly to support research at WPBO.
Click here to go to the Michigan Audubon site to donate, or call the Michigan Audubon office (Monday-Friday, 9-5) at 517-580-7364. Thank you for supporting WPBO!
