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:
  1. Start early to sign up sponsors to pledge to your personal Birdathon.
  2. Pick a 24-hour period within the dates specified to find as many species as possible.
  3. Collect the pledges from your sponsors as soon as you can.
  4. 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.
