Event Details

Santa Barbara’s 2nd Birdathon: April 26 - May 4, 2014 

— Beginners Welcome — 

Please join us for the 2014 Birdathon! This major fundraiser will support the many programs and projects Santa Barbara Audubon Society (SBAS) undertakes to contribute to our area’s habitats and its birds. There are four major event types this year (field trips, team counts, evening reception and wrap-up picnic). With your participation in these events, we hope to top our fundraising result of greater than $7,000 from the 2013 Birdathon. We hope you find many activities to enjoy! 

*** NOTE: Tickets sales start on April 1 at 8:00 am ****


Birdathon Overview: 

  • It’s easy! Register online here starting April 1.
  • Sign up for one or more of the 7 expert-led field trips on April 27 and May 2-4. 
  • Count bird species anytime from April 26 - May 4, on your own or with a team! 
  • Raise funds for SBAS by asking friends and family to sponsor your sightings. 
  • Sponsor other birders’ (or your own) efforts by donating funds for their counts. 
  • Evening reception at Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration — Wednesday, April 30, 5:30 - 8:00 pm. 
  • Join the wrap-up picnic Sunday May 4, 1-3 pm at Stow Grove Park to hear Birdathon results. 
  • Tickets are non-refundable but are transferrable.  
  • Your donation excluding lunch cost is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Our non-profit ID number is 23-7051362.

Questions? Email us at Birdathon@SantaBarbaraAudubon.org 

There are seven field trips held on Sunday April 27 and Friday - Sunday May 2-4. Trips times are listed with each ticket and meeting locations will be confirmed with a followup email when you make a purchase.

The wine and cheese evening event at the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration (CCBER) is a rare opportunity to browse the extensive collection of preserved bird and natural history specimens and hear a lecture by Dr. Adrian O'Loghlen from UCSB on songbird communication and how this relates to his research on cowbirds.  

The wrap-up picnic at Stow Grove Park on Sunday May 4 will be an opportunity to have everyone gather and see how many bird species all the teams and individuals counted and share fun stories.  A species list will be compiled based on the team/individual count results.  Last year we counted 202 species!

All you need to do is browse the events and pick the ones you'd like to buy and do everything online.  You'll get a confirmation email with instructions on where and when to meet for each event.  You don't need to bring a ticket to your events, since we'll have a record of your purchase.  Hope to see you at many events - enjoy!
