Birdathon – May 20, 2017

May 20, 2017 @ 12:00 am – 11:59 pm

The Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory – St. Louis County Birdathon is a fun citizen-science event. It also serves as an important means of fundraising for the bird conservation research and education programs of Hawk Ridge. Birders of all levels of ability are invited to form or join one of the birding teams attempting to find as many species as possible in a 24-hour period. Or, you can compete in other categories, such as a Big Sit or the non-motorized division. Prizes will be awarded for each category.

Birdathon Compilation Brunch will be held on Sunday, May 21 at 9:30 am. Location to be announced soon (NOTE: it will not be held at Hartley Nature Center this year, due to parking lot construction).
