Support the 44th Annual Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon!

Visit our Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon page to get more information and support a team or an individual today. The counting period–from September 15th to October 15th–has ended, but the fundraising has not!

In 2021 over 24 teams and 99 counters spent time connecting with nature in unique and creative ways and raised over $65,000 for urgently needed conservation. Visit our 2021 highlights blog for more stats, photos, and stories for some inspiration. This year we send cheers and tons of gratitude to the 373 donors (so far!), 26 teams and 92 counters to raise over $55,000 (and counting) to benefit conservation science. We are so grateful for your support. But we are still short of our $75,000 fundraising goal. Please consider supporting a team or indiviual today or just making a general donation to the Bird-A-Thon by visiting www.pointblue.org/birdathon.

Since Point Blue’s Bird-A-Thon inception, more than $3 million have been raised for conservation science. Your support will help Point Blue scientists reduce the impacts of climate change, habitat loss, and other environmental threats while promoting nature-based, climate-smart solutions for wildlife and people.

Thank you to all the dedicated Bird-A-Thonners for your incredible efforts. We look forward to celebrating with you this year and seeing you again next year for our annual FUNraiser. If you have any additional questions, please contact Jaime Lilly at JLilly@pointblue.org or Lishka Arata at larata@pointblue.org.  

Some of the results from team and individual counts in 2021 are shown below in the graph. It can be competitive if you want it to be, but the most important part is to get out there in nature, appreciate it, and drum up a little extra support for all the benefits birds and our ecosystems provide.

Many of our events require sign-up.

Information is listed in the description. If you have questions, please contact Jaime Lilly, Community Engagement Manager, at jlilly@pointblue.org.
