Support the Milford Point Coastal Center With a Pledge for the 'Big Sit!'

Our Connecticut “Big Sit!” champions, the B.W. Surf Scopers (consisting of our Coastal Center Director Frank Gallo along with Jim Dugan, Patrick Dugan, Tina Green, and Frank Mantlik) will defend, and attempt to break, their own Connecticut “Big Sit!” birding record – 107 species seen from within a 17-foot circle – and raise money to support the Coastal Center in the process.

This international event, created by New Haven Bird Club, and sponsored by Bird Watchers Digest, will be held Sunday, October 13, with teams competing worldwide.

The B.W. Surf Scopers will position themselves on the observation platform at the Smith Point end of Milford Point. The goal is to spot as many species of birds as possible without leaving their seats!

We need your help to make this event the best yet. Please support the team's record-breaking quest with a pledge.

Every dollar you pledge will go directly to support the Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center at Milford Point – truly one of the best birding destinations in the Northeast!

For a pledge form, please contact Louise Crocco, our office manager, at 203-878-7440 x 502.

You can pledge a lump sum or a dollar amount per bird. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible; the money is used to support our conservation and education efforts. We’ll post the results here.

We appreciate your generous support!
