At midnight on Saturday, May 6, five birders will take to Monmouth County's fields, forests, swamps and beaches looking for birds in New Jersey's largest birding competition -- and they need your support.
May 6 is the date of the 34th annual World Series of Birding. The objective for the 70-plus competing teams is to identify as many different species of birds as possible within the boundaries of the state of New Jersey. While it may sound like a game, Many national and international conservation organizations use this event as a primary source of raising funds for their survival.
Our MCAS team, "Cheep Trills," takes it verrry seriously, too. This is Monmouth County Audubon's only fundraiser, and finding the most birds is how the team hopes to raise as much money as possible. It's the team's 22nd year participating in this event on behalf of MCAS.
"The Monmouth County Audubon Society sponsors programs that we're proud to support," explains team founder Dena Temple. "We've started a scholarship program for Monmouth County's future conservationists and naturalists. Part of the organization's mission is to teach the love and respect for nature to tomorrow's leaders, and this is a worthwhile way to do that."
