BENEFITING: The Land Conservancy of New Jersey

EVENT DATE: May 09, 2015

THE STORY:

Did you know that a rare painted bunting, called nonpareil by the French because of its’ unparalleled beauty, was spotted at a birdfeeder in Andover this winter?  Or that a pink-footed goose was a foot in Plainsboro and snowy owls called Sandy Hook home this season?     

You might not, but the Highlands Hawks do and they are ready for the 2015 World Series of Birding “Big Day!”  Join us in supporting them by making a donation.

Organized each year by the New Jersey Audubon Society, The World Series of Birding is a contest where skilled birders compete as teams to see who can record the most species of birds in one day.  This “Big Day” raises thousands of dollars for conservation organizations, like The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, while taking a critical inventory of migratory bird species.   Over 60 teams participate throughout the state in this environmental treasure hunt, including The Land Conservancy of New Jersey’s very own, Highlands Hawks.  

Top-placing teams have sighted one-third of all of the species of birds known in North America, right here in New Jersey - in one day.

The Land Conservancy’s team will be trying to identify over 200 birds across the state in this year’s “Big Day.”   Every species the Highlands Hawks spots helps The Land Conservancy of New Jersey preserve more land and protect critical habitat and wildlife, the heart our work. Last year, the World Series of Birding raised over $14,000 for The Land Conservancy. 

Thank you for your support of the Highlands Hawks and The Land Conservancy.  Together, we are working to make New Jersey an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.

p.s. The Highland Hawks team loves a challenge! If you'd like to spur them on to find more birds, make a per bird pledge of 25-cents, 50-cents or even $1 dollar a bird.  Contact us at rvanantwerp@tlc-nj.org or call us at 973-541-1010x14 for more information.  After the event we will let you know how many birds our team identified and provide all the information you’ll need to honor your pledge.
