RAS does not have programs in June, July or August.
Each year, Richmond Audubon sponsors a Bird-a-Thon as one of our major fund raisers. Crack
teams of intrepid birders criss-cross the state
over a frantic 24 hour period of their choosing,
identifying by sight and sound as many species as
they can. Your mission, should you choose to
accept it, is to pick one of the teams to back and
make a donation to show your support!
