Support Birds Through the Columbus Audubon Birdathon

Each spring, bird enthusiasts across Central Ohio state come together to participate in the Columbus Audubon Birdathon. This annual event is the largest fundraiser for CA, and helps support some of Ohio's most threatened and endangered birds.

Birdathon participants form teams, set a goal of how many species they hope to find within 24 hours, and then start fundraising #ForTheBirds!


How It Works

The Birdathon engages individuals and groups to raise support and awareness for Columbus Audubon's bird conservation and nature education work in Central Ohio, Anyone can participate by donating to a team or forming a team to count birds. It's like a walk-a-thon style fundraiser, but instead of logging miles, our participants are logging bird sightings! 🦅

Birdathon teams can participate any time in May and can compete in 4-hour, 12-hour, or 24-hour categories.

How, when, and where you bird is up to you. Whether you're backyard birding for a few hours in the backyard or planning a route to hit all your favorite hotspots in one day, it all counts! Participation is free and all skill levels are welcome to join! From beginning birders to seasoned scouters, the Birdathon is for everyone.
