We look forward to another great fundraising year to benefit the birds of Central Indiana thanks to our generous donors. With your help we will raise the $30,000+ necessary to fund our nine grant requests. This year we have 14 teams competing in the Big Day as well as fundraising. Details of the grant recipients, teams, and how to donate can be seen on the Birdathon Page.
