Each spring, bird-enthusiasts from across the state come together to participate in the Great Wisconsin Birdathon. This annual event is the largest fundraiser for bird conservation in Wisconsin and helps support some of our state's most threatened and endangered birds. Birdathon participants form teams, set a goal of how many species they hope to find within 24 hours, and then start fundraising #ForTheBirds! Where does that money go? Funds raised through the Great Wisconsin Birdathon directly support the Natural Resources Foundation's Bird Protection Fund. This fund provides critical support for high priority bird conservation projects that benefit Wisconsin's birds throughout their lifecycles. This event runs from April 15th to June 15th.
