The Nerds are planning a "big day" on Saturday to raise money for the DVOC Interns Fund. This fund is being developed to sponsor an ornithology intern at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. For the past few years, we have entered into the official World Series of Birding but this year, we decided to go rogue so that we can do what we want and raise some money for DVOC.
We are planning to start before sun up to listen for owls, rails and whippoorwills at Jake's Landing Rd then head to Higbee beach to round up some warblers and songbirds after dawn. After that, we'll race around Cape May county to find as many species as possible. Hopefully, we'll have good weather.
Soooo, this is our goal this year is to have you all sponsor us. Here are a few options:
Pledge a flat fee - $25, $50, $100?
Pledge an amount per bird - $.50, $1? (hoping to see 150+ species)
Tell us to go pound sand - free
Email me or send me a check. I'll post our results on Sunday.
