After cancellation last year due to Covid-19 concerns the Montezuma
Muckrace is back on! We are scheduling the event for September
10-11th, 7pm-7pm. 

        The Muckrace is a 24 hour birding event in which teams (or
individuals) search the Montezuma Wetlands Complex trying to see or
hear as many species as possible. The event is also a fundraiser for
the Friends of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. 2019 brought out 34
teams (151 total participants, a new record) which totaled 176 species
seen and/or heard and raised over $11,000! 

        Money raised goes towards bird conservation, wildlife habitat
improvement and public access in the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. Teams
pay a registration fee and gather donations and/or sponsorships for
this fundraiser. There are several categories under which a team can
register including; Competitive, Recreational, Low-Carbon,
Family/Mentor, and Photo. 

        T-shirts will be available for $12 per team member and a pizza dinner
following the event is included in the registration fee. During the
dinner a wrap-up of the event will be presented along with a wide
assortment of prizes.

        Please visit for
information on past Muckrace events and where you’ll be able to
register your team soon for this year’s event!
