There really is no place on Earth like the Delaware Bay in M...
Please accept my apologies for a tardy post regarding this year’s 13th Annual Delaware Bird-A-Thon wrap-up but I know all of you have been busy pulling in your pledges! A heart-felt THANK YOU goes out to EVERYONE who participated in this year’s Delaware Bird-A-Thon, whether a field participant, organizer, supporter, sponsor or donor – each one of your efforts will help make another year of successful bird conservation in Delaware!! From all reports, the birding was exceptional this year, albeit, our beloved Mother’s Day Walk was washed out for the first time in 13 years.
As we move into the last stage of completing the 2019 Delaware Bird-A-Thon, please keep these important dates in mind and mark your calendar as we wrap up the 2019 DBAT:
1) ALL final entries are due by June 16th – this includes your Field Checklist, your Sponsor Pledge Form and ALL collected funds. Please mail your final entry packet to DOS PO Box 4247 Greenville, DE 19807. If you need to make different arrangements for submitting your entry and collected funds, please reply directly to this email.
2) The Delaware Bird-A-Thon Awards Celebration will take place on June 22nd @ 1:00 PM as a part of the DOS Annual Picnic. This year’s event will be hosted by the Delaware Wild Lands @ the Robert’s Farm, 140 Stave’s Landing Rd, Middletown, DE. Further DOS Picnic and Field Trips details can be found here https://www.dosbirds.org/event/annual-dos-june-picnic-saturday-june-22/
3). If you would like to donate to this year’s event and have not yet done so, please visit https://delawarebirdathon.com. You will be happy you contributed to habitat conservation in Delaware!
4). As to your $100,000 goal………we are over 1/2 the way there (!) with many team entries not yet submitted, stay tuned for further updates as they become available, definitely going down to the wire!
And lastly, THANK YOU !!
