The Land Conservancy of New Jersey’s World Series of Birding team, the Highlands Hawks, will participate in the Annual World Series of Birding on Saturday, May 12. Armed with binoculars and spotting scopes, the team will be combing Sussex County with one objective in mind: identifying as many species of birds as possible in a 24-hour period. This is the 22nd year that we have participated in this event. Sponsored by the New Jersey Audubon Society, this celebrated event focuses on New Jersey’s wealth of natural resources and its strategic importance to migrating birds while helping to raise funds to protect natural habitat. Top-placing teams record over 200 species--that’s over one-third of all the species in North America, right here in New Jersey in one day! Because of the generous support of many individuals who made pledges on our team’s behalf, The Land Conservancy of New Jersey can continue its efforts to preserve critical natural lands and special places in New Jersey where mourning doves & great horned owls thrive. This benefits all of our wildlife and enriches the quality of our own lives as well.
The Highland Hawks team loves a challenge! If you'd like to spur them on to find more birds, make a per bird pledge of 25-cents, 50-cents or even $1 dollar a bird. Contact us at email@example.com call us at 973-541-1010x25 for more information. After the event we will let you know how many birds our team identified and provide all the information you’ll need to honor your pledge.
