Default Help raise money for the Raptor Trust

Along with Drew alums Stephen Bagen and Maura Griffen, I will be participating in the World Series of Birding this Saturday, May 11th. All money our team raises will be donated to our team's designated charity, The Raptor Trust. The Raptor Trust rescues and rehabilitates birds and is one of the premier raptor rehabilitation centers in the United States. The Trust is located in the Great Swamp in nearby Millington and is celebrating it's 25th anniversary this year. This is an important fund-raising year for the Raptor Trust and any money we can raise would be greatly appreciated.

The World Series of Birding is a competitive event where teams try to identify the most species of birds in a 24 hour period. Some teams travel the entire state, others confine themselves to a limited area. Our team will be birding in Cape May County and will be cycling our route beginning at Belleplain State Forest in northwest Cape May County and ending at Cape May Point State Park. We expect to ride over 60 miles and see between 100 to 125 species of birds. We are not threats to win any awards, but plan to have a great time and raise a lot of money for the Raptor Trust!

If you are interested in sponsoring our team, please contact me. Pledges are typically made based on the number of species of birds our team finds, so if you pledge 20 cents per bird and we find 115 species, your donation would total $23.00. You may also choose to simply pledge a fixed amount of money.

Thanks for your consideration!

Scott Wood
