Birdathon

A fun, friendly competition that raises money for bird conservation in Arkansas.

Teams compete to find the greatest number of bird species in 24 hours on any day from May 7-22, 2022. Select your date. Sets species and fundraising goals. Then collect pledges and donations from friends, family, and community members. Donors can pledge per bird or make an upfront contribution.

The Birdathon is competitive, with prizes for Most Species-Field Team, Most Species-Backyard Team, and Most Money Raised. 

These two team categories are available to provide everyone the opportunity to participate in a way that is safe and comfortable for you. Mark your category on your registration form. 

  • Field Birdathon team - two to five participants, bird anywhere in the state, $250/fundraising minimum
  • Backyard Birdathon team - an individual or household, bird from your property, $100 fundraising minimum

On Wednesday, May 25, all teams are invited to join us at the virtual Bird Bash from 7-8pm where you will share about your birdathon experience and prizes will be announced. 

Team registration deadline is April 15. To register, submit the registration form via email or via mail to the Little Rock Audubon Center, 4500 Springer Blvd., Little Rock, AR 72206.

  • Full registration packet can be downloaded here
  • Individual forms (Team Registration Form, Birdathon Rules, Pledge Tracker, etc.) can also be downloaded below. 

Each individual team member will receive a BirdAR tshirt and 'Volunteer Bird Survey' car magnet. Each registered team will have their own Birdathon Team Profile and Donation page to make fundraising easier.
