Subject: Earth Day Birding Classic covering Blair and surrounding counties April 22-23
The *2nd annual Earth Day Birding Classic* at Penn State Altoona will be
held on April 22 and 23, 2017. 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 beginning at noon on 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 in central Pennsylvania. Teams
of 3 or more (2 or more for Senior citizens and Big Sitters) will count
birds in Blair and surrounding counties, and prizes will be awarded during
the closing ceremony at the Slep Center on the Penn State Altoona campus
immediately following the event. To register and for more information,
please contact Catherine Farr at <catiegk5059...>
