Birdathon 2023

We have raised $48,684.98 of our $50,000.00  goal.

We're excited to reveal our brand new Birdathon logo, featuring a colorful array of migratory birds by Advisory Board Member Cin-Ty Lee. A big thank you to Cin-Ty for generously donating his art!

Birdathon is Houston Audubon’s community fundraiser where teams of all skill levels are encouraged to get out in nature and count birds while raising funds for Houston Audubon’s work in the protection of birds through habitat restoration, surveying and monitoring, nature education, supporting bird-friendly communities, and advocacy efforts.

This is the traditional 24-hour Birdathon team that competes for most bird species, fundraising and prizes!
