The 3rd annual Earth Week Birding Classic at Penn State Altoona will start at 12 noon on Sunday, April 15 and end at 12 noon on Sunday, April 22, 2018. Teams will choose one 24-hour “day” to complete their count and must register their count time 24 hours in advance. Registration is free. The goal is for teams in seven different categories to count as many species of birds as possible in the 24-hour-period during the week prior to Earth Day, April 22.
This non-profit event is co-sponsored by the Environmental Studies program at Penn State Altoona and Juniata Valley Audubon Society (JVAS). Pledges that team members garner will support bird conservation and education. Teams of 3 or more (2 or more for Senior citizens and Big Sitters) will count birds in Blair and surrounding counties (Bedford, Huntingdon, Centre, Clearfield, Cambria), and prizes will be awarded during the closing ceremony at the Penn State Altoona campus immediately following the event.
