Sponsor Ethan for the Carden Challenge (Birdathon)

Hello friends!
On May 30 at 6pm, I'll be starting a 24hour birdathon to identify as many species of birds as possible in the Carden region of central Ontario. I'll be joined by teammates Mark Wiercinski, John Haselmayer and Greg Stroud - they are all serious bird geeks. We'll be competing against a bunch of other teams and our plan is simple: we're going to kick some birding butt!

The birdathon is a fundraiser to support conservation of the Carden Alvar, a highly significant ecosystem, which also happens to be one of the top locations in Ontario for birding and bird photography.

So what am I asking from you? Please support this worthy conservation cause by sponsoring me for the event. You can pledge a fixed amount or on a per-species basis. To make a pledge, simply send an email to the Couchiching Conservancy at: nature@couchconservancy.ca and tell them the pledge amount and your contact info (ie. mailing address). They'll heckle you for the cash later.

If you're still skeptical and want to know more, check out the following webpage:

Thanks on behalf of the birds!
