2020 Gone Birding Scavenger Hunt Winners Announced

The ‘2020 Gone Birding’ Scavenger Hunt, sponsored this Spring by Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society (DOAS) has been a great hit! “We seem to have struck a chord with people – when all sorts of activities have been cancelled, this has provided something to do either as a solo activity or with small family groups. The fact that you can do it anywhere also helps!”
