Big Atlas Weekend
June 25 @ 6:00 pm - June 27 @ 11:59 pm
The New York, Maine, Maryland-DC, and North Carolina bird atlases are organizing a “Big Atlas Weekend” on June 25 – 27 to fill gaps in the Atlas data and encourage some friendly competition between their four states. We hope that folks from all over will be inspired to use it as an opportunity to get out birding in these active atlas states and win some great prizes while helping collect valuable breeding bird data for the entire region.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
To participate, all you have to do is go atlasing in New York, Maine, Maryland-DC, or North Carolina between 6:00 pm Friday, June 25 and 11:59 pm Sunday, June 27 and submit your checklist(s) through that state’s Atlas portal in eBird. You can also check out the kick off event to get excited for the weekend and our awards ceremony to watch your favorite state be crowned the winner (hopefully!).
