About the Event
Here at the SPIBNC&AS, one of our main and constant objectives is to preserve and create habitat for migratory bird species! These habitats serve as important rest stops for birds in migration. Our feathered friends can find food, water, and shelter in order for them to build up the energy to continue on their journeys.
Join our naturalists during the peak of fall migration as we bird from our back deck all day in an effort to record as many species as possible as we take part in "Global Big Day", a global effort to record as many bird species as possible in the world in a day!
As a non-profit organization, we need community support to be able to further preserve and create important habitat for these migratory birds, so we are also treating this day as a fundraiser. We are asking our supporters to pledge a monetary amount per bird species that we tally on this birding "Big Day' effort. The pledge donation can be as small as $.25 per bird or a max of $5 per bird. We can usually see up to 60-70 species during these efforts in this migration time of year.
Pledge your support by clicking the RSVP button below and you will receive an invoice with our bird tally for the day.
Thank you so much for your care and support!
