Plainsboro Preserve Purple Martins

Have you ever wanted to participate in the World Series of Birding, but weren’t sure how to go about it? Join us for a fun-filled Big Day in central New Jersey. Birders of all skill levels and experience are welcome. We need your eyes and ears to reach our goal of identifying 115 species of birds on the day.

Participants will experience the fun and excitement of the World Series of Birding without the need for extensive planning and scouting ahead of time. The pace will be moderate, allowing us to enjoy the birds we find in a variety of habitats, including the Sourland Mountains, Delaware River, grasslands, salt marsh, and the beaches of Raritan Bay.

There is no registration fee, but participants are expected to pledge at least one dollar per species, with all proceeds benefiting Plainsboro Preserve's mission of education and conservation.

If you're interested in joining us, please call the Center at 609-897-9400 for more information and to reserve your spot on the team.

If you can't join us on the Big Day, please consider supporting Plainsboro Preserve by clicking on the Donate Now button to the right.
