Subject: [obol] Benton County Big Sit; September 24!
Hi all,
The Benton County Big Sit is just a little over 2 weeks away! This is a
great excuse to visit Finley NWR in the heart of the Willamette Valley.

The Benton County Big Sit is organized by Isaac Denzer, Kai Frueh, and Ben
Frueh who are all very enthusiastic teenage birders trying to support bird
conservation by raising money for organizations involved in bird
conservation. During the fundraiser we will count bird species for 15 hours
from the Cabell Marsh blind at Finley NWR (which has a 17ft diameter).

The money we raise will be evenly divided between the following

Friends of the Willamette Valley NWR complex
Friends of Malheur NWR
Corvallis Audubon
Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Last year's sit was a huge success; we ended the day with 72 species and
$2722 raised for bird conservation! This year our goal is to raise over
Please help us meet our goal!!
