- Seneca Rocks placed first nationally in 2003 for chapters of our size.
- The Birdathon takes place annually in May in conjunction with National Audubon's Birdathon. It is a fun fundraiser where people get pledges from family, friends, and acquaintances for the number of species that they sight during a 24-hour period in early to mid-May. Kits will be available at the April meeting of each year.
- There are four steps to a successful Birdathon:
- Start early to sign up sponsors to pledge to your personal Birdathon.
- Pick a 24-hour period within the dates specified to find as many species as possible.
- Collect the pledges from your sponsors as soon as you can.
- Send the list of sponsors and addresses, your bird list, and the money to the coordinator by June 10.
- Each year the SRAS board decides where the proceeds go. It has become a tradition to use part of the funds for Audubon Adventures in classrooms in the SRAS chapter area. SRAS has also supported Audubon Pennsylvania with money we raise from the Birdathon.
- The coordinator is Janice Horn. For more information, email Janice here.
