Wallace Birdathon - Northumberland Land Trust
PARTICIPATE IN THE 9TH ANNUAL WALLACE BIRDATHON 2018
Six expert birders will cover the six properties for a maximum of 24 hours in any 24-hour period of their choice sometime in May…
- Ben Walters (McEwen Nature Reserve)
- Paulette Hebert (Pelton Nature Reserve)
- David Geale (Jack van Nostrand Nature Reserve)
- Roger Frost (Leckey Nature Reserve)
- Doug McRae (Chub Point Nature Reserve)
- Kurt Appleman (Laurie Lawson Outdoor Education Centre)
When supporters sponsor one of our birders, they will make a guess at the total number of species the six birders will record; the closest guess will win 2L of delicious Northumberland County Maple Syrup .
For a sponsorship of $75 or more, a maximum of 11 sponsors can choose to accompany one of the expert birders for all or part (to be negotiated) of their 24 hours; to take advantage of this offer, you must contact John Geale to make arrangements…
- in person;
- by phone (905) 342-3851;
- or by e-mail email@example.com
Please remember that although the birders will try to choose good days, poor weather is possible and some of the walking could be wet or on rough ground. Accompanying one of the birders is a great opportunity to get a close look at one of the reserves and enjoy some fabulous birding – as last year showed, you never know what will turn up!

All the funds raised will be used for acquisition costs and stewardship of our properties: maintaining fences, controlling invasive species, preserving habitat for at-risk species, creating trails, and setting out bird nest boxes. Many thanks to the six expert birders and for your support of this important fund-raiser.
You will receive a charitable receipt for any sponsorship donation of $20 or more, which can be used to claim a tax deduction. Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $20.00 or more.
