Birdathon 2014 Toolkit
Every year during May, Eastside Audubon members raise funds for conservation and education through all-out birding.
During Birdathon we have special trips, walks and events. We bird for pledges, and we pledge donations to individual birders and Birdathon teams.
And if you prefer to make a direct contribution to Eastside Audubon, there's no better time than Birdathon to do it.
We're fortunate in 2014 to have a challenge grant for Birdathon from the Melody S. Robidoux Foundation that gives us the potential to magnify the impact of our fundraising efforts.
For the second year in a row, the foundation has pledged to match every Birdathon dollar we raise, up to a total grant of $15,000.
We met the Robidoux challenge last spring. Let's do it again! Learn more about the Robidoux Foundation and the grant.
Field Trips and Birding Walks
Birdathon is the one time of year when Eastside Audubon suggests a donation for participating in some of our trips and walks. Several special outings are scheduled for Birdathon month in May. To see them all, visit the EAS Calendar.
