Awards Celebration

Join us for our fun-filled Birdathon 2017 Awards Celebration, from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday May 13th. Mingle with birding friends, share Birdathon stories, and enjoy boutique wines and gourmet appetizers at a stunning Oakland Hills home surrounded by dramatic views of Chabot Regional Park. And of course find out the grand prize winners of Birdathon 2017!
