2020 California Fall Challenge Band-a-Thon
Have you ever visited SFBBO’s bird banding station at the Coyote Creek Field Station (CCFS), toured our mist nets, and seen birds up close and “in the hand?” Do you value long-term datasets that tell the story of Bay Area birds and help scientists from local universities and across the globe better understand how changes in habitat and climate may be impacting birds? Do you want kids to have the chance to see biologists in action and explore science as a career?
Then we invite you to support our 2020 Band-a-Thon, a special campaign to raise money for our field station, an important science hub that has researched birds for 40 years. Here’s how:
Pledge Per Bird: Pledge to donate a certain amount per bird caught at CCFS from Sept. 16-Oct. 14, 2020. To make this pledge, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us (408) 946-6548 ext. 2. We will send you a final count on Thursday, Oct. 15, so you can calculate your final donation along with a link where you can make the donation. Since 2003, captures during this period have ranged from 379 to 1026 birds. You can put a cap on the amount you give.
Donate a Single Amount Now In Support of the Banding Center.
Weekly Updates: SFBBO’s Landbird Program team will send a detailed weekly report to everyone who participates in the Band-a-Thon updating them about recent activity at the banding station. You can receive reports by donating to the Band-a-Thon today!
