Great Wisconsin Birdathon

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

Groundswell is participating in the Great Wisconsin Birdathon this year. We are team Grousewell!

Join us for Wisconsin’s largest bird conservation fundraiser! It’s like a walk-a-thon style fundraiser, but instead of logging miles, we’ll be logging bird sightings. Half of the donations that we raise will go to Groundswell and half will go towards the Natural Resource Foundation of Wisconsin’s Bird Protection Fund.

Ben Lam (Outreach & Events Coordinator) will lead an outing at Patrick Marsh.

What to Expect
The outing will be approximately one to two miles of slow-paced walking on a dirt trail. It’ll be spring migration, so there should be great bird activity. American White Pelicans are typically at Patrick Marsh during this time of year too!

No Birding Experience Required
Everyone is welcome and no birding experience is required! This is a great opportunity to join even if it’ll be your very first-time birding. Birding is a team effort and we can all learn from each other.

The Feminist Bird Club Chapter of Madison has generously let us borrow some of their binoculars! We’ll have binoculars available to borrow (a limited amount). Please indicate in the registration if you would like to borrow a pair during the outing.
