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

Visit our Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon page to get more information and sign up your team or as an individual today. The counting period is from September 15th to October 15th, 2022. You choose a period of 24 hours to count within, your location(s), and your teammates. You can also do an individual count.

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.

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 seeing you again this year and we are excited to welcome new birders to 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.
