Thank you for an amazing 2019 Birdathon! See you in 2020!


What is Birdathon?

Birdathon is Tahoma Audubon's annual community fundraiser. It is a fun way to engage with birds and nature while raising essential funds to support our mission of connecting people with birds and nature.

Birdathon is exciting, educational and fun! Everyone is welcome from expert birders, casual birdwatchers, beginners or even folks just looking to get outside. This year to help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary we are adding unique walks for beginners.

Like a walk-a-thon, Birdathon participants collect pledges from friends and family for finding and counting birds. Officially, a count lasts for 24 contiguous hours anytime between April 1 and June 21. For those seasoned birdathoners it can get very competitive. Sponsors are even known to donate a dollar amount for each species of bird seen.

We have prizes for our top teams and individuals and a summertime event to celebrate together.  

We hope you'll join us for the 2020 Birdathon!
