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
