2020 Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon

Join us in the 42nd annual Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon, taking place from September 15–October 15!

During a time where we all feel socially distant and relatively isolated, we at Point Blue are looking forward to connecting around birds and nature, something we all share a love of and passion for. The Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon is back for 2020 and we need your help to keep momentum strong!

Register now and encourage your friends, family, co-workers, local businesses, and anybody else you know to sponsor you in the country’s longest running Bird-A-Thon to benefit Point Blue Conservation Science. As a participant, you may bird in any location for up to 24 consecutive hours during the period of September 15–October 15, 2020. Choose to count as many species of birds as you can identify, either by sight or sound.
