Birders sought to raise money for Audubon Society

The Tucson Audubon Society is looking for birders to help raise money for the organization this month through its Birdathon, according to a news release.

“Birdathon is similar to a charity walkathon where walkers earn donations for numbers of miles walked. Instead we count birds,” said Chris Harrison of the Audubon Society, who organized the event.

Birdwatchers will gather in teams from now until May 10 to count bird species in specified areas. Donations will be raised through pledges of money for each species spotted or a flat donation.

Birders can create their own teams or join teams organized by the Audubon Society, the news release said.

For more information, see the Audubon Society Web site at www.tucsonaudubon.org or call or e-mail Harrison at 629-0757 or charrison@tucsonaudubon.org.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
