Biothon Outing: Hadley Area
May 21, 2017—7:00 am - 12:00 pm$40
With Scott Surner
Scott’s birding courses sell out fast every spring – here’s a second chance to get out on a bird walk with Scott this season! As part of the Biothon, Hitchcock’s annual spring biodiversity event and fundraiser, Scott’s team found 48 birds last year. Can you help the team find even more this year? Come join the fun, enjoy the return of the Valley’s migratory birds, and benefit the Hitchcock Center, too!
The Hitchcock Center’s 18th Annual 2017 Biothon starts May 12th! You’ve heard of marathons, walk-a-thons, and dance-a-thons: this is our version. Biothon is a fundraiser for the Hitchcock Center’s environmental education programs. And it’s a fun and educational way to document the biodiversity of our region. Biothon is a team event during peak spring biodiversity.
Teams choose the time, location, and species to count: birds, plants, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, insects, or everything! Teams collect pledges in support of their outing.
Teams will be out identifying species in the Valley at specific sites for any time period (up to 24-hours) on Friday, May 12 – Sunday, May 14 or on Friday, June 2 – Sunday, June 4. Teams choose their day and time, where to go out, and what species to count.
Your participation helps us to document our region’s biodiversity, and strengthen high-quality environmental education programs for our whole community – thank you!
