Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

Alvar Birdathon

To raise funds for the Burnt Lands Alvar Campaign, Cliff Bennett and Lynda Bennett will go birding for a 24-hour period sometime in May, to record all species of birds seen or heard during the 24 hours. In previous 24-hour counts, they have averaged about 100 species.

You may sponsor/pledge a fixed amount or an amount per species. Those pledging $20 or more will receive a receipt for Income Tax purposes (receipts will be issued for lesser amounts only on request).

A contest is also being held for people who wish to have sponsor sheets and collect pledges. To make a pledge or to receive pledge sheets to get involved in the contest (winner to receive prize donated by Gilligallou Bird), please contact Peggy McPhail at  .
