Your 2019 Birdathon Pledge Will Help Conservation Locally, Regionally, and Statewide

When you participate and make a pledge to the 2019 Birdathon, on May 17-19, your contribution will help support:

  • Conservation education, including our award-winning Science in Nature outdoor education program.
  • Conservation work at each of our centers, in Fairfield, Glastonbury, Pomfret, and Sherman, at Milford Point, and at the Roger Tory Peterson Estuary Center in Old Lyme.
  • Citizen science projects including Osprey Nation, which since 2014 has tracked the nesting success of the state’s Ospreys.

  • Bird conservation work such as the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, a partnership to protect vulnerable Piping Plovers, American Oystercatchers, and other species.
  • Shrubland habitat restoration that provides nesting areas for Blue-winged Warblers, Indigo Buntings, Eastern Towhees, and other birds at:
    • Smith Richardson Preserve in Westport
    • Bafflin Preserve in Pomfret
    • Chaney Preserve in Montville
    • Trail Wood in Hampton
  • IBA monitoring at the Coastal Center at Milford Point, to ensure the protection of birds at this busy coastal area.
  • Connecticut Audubon’s involvement in the Connecticut Bird Atlas, the biggest and most important bird research project ever in Connecticut.

Thank you for your generosity!
