Birdathon is your local Putnam Highlands Audubon Society’s (PHAS) fundraising appeal, providing us with nearly all of our operating funds.
For 24 hours our teams will seek out as many bird species as possible, surveying from Long Island to the Catskills! Our birders are again dedicating their efforts to the memory of three stalwarts: Jim and Doug Rod and Marty McGuire. Our teams this year include, Beakin' Beginner's, Garrison Gumshoes, Putnam Valley Bogtrotters and the Wappingers Creakers.
Your generous donation stays local and supports these PHAS programs:
This year our teams sighted and counted 159 unique bird species. The winning team was:
Putnam Valley Bogtrotters with 112 birds, Garrison Gumshoes a close second of 108, Beakin’ Beginners a very respectable 58 and Wappinger Creekers with an even 100.
So far we have received $6,720 in donations towards our goal of $7,000 Please show your support and donate today.
