The 25th annual Montezuma Muckrace is scheduled for September 9-10th, 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. 2021 brought out 35 teams which totaled 187 species seen and/or heard and raised over $12,000! 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 and teams can share their experiences and highlights. Camping will also be available at the Montezuma Audubon Center in Savannah for Friday night. Please visit https://friendsofmontezuma.org/projects-programs/muckrace/ for information on past Muckrace events and where you’ll be able to register your team for this year’s event!. (Once again there will be an early gun season for deer with opening day on 9/9. Hunters were sparse last year but wearing blaze orange is advised, especially on Howland Island.) -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
