The Northwest Indiana Migratory Bird Association will set out for another Birdathon in 2018! In early May our team will be starting at 2:30am for owls, whippoorwills, and nighthawks, and race towards the finish line, after dark, picking up raptors, shorebirds, and warblers along the way.
How can you help raise money for dunes area bird conservation? It’s easy! Simply fill out the form on the bottom and send it in by May 10th (do it today, while it is on your mind!). Last year our team found a team record 166 species of birds. If you had pledged a dime for each species, you would have $16.60…you get the idea! If you want to challenge our team with an extra $5.00 for a specific bird, maybe your favorite rare bird, please do so. It’s a fun way to raise money for a very good cause.
The full list of birds will be sent to all that pledge. Last year's funds helped NIMBA provide financial support to the Indiana Dunes Birding Festival conservation inititiatives. www.indunesbirdingfestival.com.
