Annual Bird-a-thon

The Urban Forest’s diverse bird population has proven HB Trees’ “If you plant it, they will come”  philosophy to be true.

The fall Huntington Beach Urban Forest BIRD-A-THON is a multi-day fundraiser for planting and bird-friendly improvements at the Urban Forest. Similar to a walk-a-thon, bird-watching participants competed as individuals or teams, raising pledge money by counting birds and bird species, recording data on the popular eBird app. Participants “bird” the park any daylight hours on any day from Thursday through Sunday in order to be included in the bird-friendly competition. No prior birding knowledge or experience is required to join the fun.
