Birdathon 2009

It is Birdathon Season Again! The months of April and May bring our annual Birdathon. You have probably already received your pledge letter for this annual fundraiser, a sponsored birding event. The money raised covers most of our expenses and helps support our educational program for school children, based at the Sepulveda Wildlife Bird Sanctuary. Please join us in pledging a set amount of money on the number of species to be spotted during a designated bird event and then do come on the walk itself! Many members choose this event to honor the leader whose walks she or he has been able to enjoy.The list of the walks in April indicates which is being included in the Birdathon this year. There will be more in May. If you did not receive a pledge form, please e-mail me at and I will be happy to send you a form.
