Birding and Boating Fundraiser
Sunday, September 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$50 – $90
The Montezuma Audubon Center is teaming up with Stivers Seneca Marine to lead two 3-hour cruises on Sunday, September 22 on a 50-seat pontoon boat through the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. Participants can sign up for the cruise at 10 AM or 2 PM to explore Montezuma’s bird migration, unique habitats, and the Cayuga-Seneca Canal’s cultural history. The cruises will begin and end at the Cowing Street Boat Dock in Seneca Falls.
The Montezuma Wetlands Complex is Audubon’s first globally significant Important Bird Area and millions of migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds and raptors stop here during their impressive journey. Late summer is a great time to experience birds in their forest and wetland habitat including Bald Eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets. This is also a opportunity to learn how the National Audubon Society and our conservation partners are protecting these birds, and what we all can do to conserve birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow.
Light refreshments, binoculars, spotting scopes, field guides and a silent auction are included. The cost per cruise is $50/person; $90/couple. Proceeds will benefit the Montezuma Audubon Center’s bird conservation projects and environmental education programs. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 315.365.3588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Montezuma Audubon Center connects people of all ages to the millions of migratory birds that use the Montezuma Wetlands Complex and gives people an appreciation for maintaining and enhancing these critically important habitats. Our wide range of conservation and education programs encourage children and adults to explore, understand and care for their natural world.
