Our Signature Teams raised $20,000!
The Madison Green Team found 149 species and raised $7,500--all on foot or by bike or kayak. Who says you need a car to bird?
 
 
 
Next up were the Cutrights Old Coots with $6,535 and165 species,
followed by the Lake Superior eBirders with $4,210 and 161 species
 
 
 
The Lincoln Birders saw 39 species, taught bird/environmental games to rest of the school on Birdathon game day, and collected $94 in their penny jar. We're inspired by these fledgeling bird conservationists!
 
 
 
 It was a Big Day of marathon birding and tweeting for teams Curlew & Screech and Cleopatra and the Stilts. With the duo finding more species and the trio raising more funds, the birds were the real winners that day.
