On May 12th the Steiner Optics, American Birding Association, Delaware Valley Ornithological Club will field a team competing in New Jersey Audubon’s World Series of Birding Carbon Footprint Challenge. Katrina Rakowski, Bull Gervasi, Jeff Gordon and Tony Croasdale will bicycle for 24 hours attempting to identify as many bird species by sight and sound as possible. This team will be raising funds for BirdPhilly, a partnership between the DVOC, the ABA and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation which provides a yearly series of free birding trips, birding backpacks at Philadelphia libraries, birding workshops, and birding programs for the visually impaired. This year the team will focus on Northern Cape May County and adjacent Cumberland Country riding from bay to ocean. We hope to buy more equipment to expand the birding backpack program, and visually impaired programs.
