walking to raise $$ for the NRF Bird Protection Fund in 2013

I am hoping I can coax all of you to support a new effort next spring. I will be attempting to raise some funds as part of a rather unusual "birdathon" in spring of 2013. The Natural Resources Foundation will be organizing another year of Great WI Birdathon events. (For more information, see: ). For mine, I will be attempting to backpack across the state of Wisconsin. Unlike most birdathons, I will be asking for folks to donate an amount per mile walked. I am working on planning my route at this time. One additional feature of this effort is to challenge each of you to join me for a half-day or a day at some point along my route. So, get out your hiking boots and think about going for a walk, sometime in May of 2013! If that isn't possible, your support in other ways will also be greatly appreciated. More info to come...
