Birders sought to raise funds for Audubon group

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
