The 2nd annual Earth Day Birding Classic at Penn State Altoona will be held on April 22 and 23, 2016, starting and ending at high noon. Registration is free. The goal is for teams in six different categories to count as many species of birds as possible in the 24-hour-period beginning at noon on Saturday, April 22. This non-profit event is co-sponsored by the Environmental Studies program at Penn State Altoona and Juniata Valley Audubon Society. Pledges that team members garner will support bird conservation and education in central Pennsylvania. Teams of three or more (two or more for senior citizens) will count birds in Blair and surrounding counties, and prizes will be awarded during the closing ceremony. The closing ceremonies will take place at the Slep Center on the Penn State Altoona campus immediately prior to and following the event. Registration deadline is April 15 – to register and for more information, please contact Catherine Farr at [email protected]
