Thank you 44th Annual Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon Participants!
Congratulations and thank you to all who participated in the 44th annual Rich Stallcup Bird-A-Thon from September 15–October 15, 2022. Your efforts exceeded our goal and raised over $86,000 to benefit Point Blue’s mission to advance the conservation of birds, other wildlife, and ecosystems! During the month, 27 teams and 94 counters spent time connecting with nature, spotting more than 231 unique bird species (including 17 rare birds)!
Below are some highlights from the Bird-A-Thon; note that the links take you to detailed write-ups and please visit our blog page to find even more stories and reports from participants.
