Battle of the Birders!
Team up with your favourite birder to help your team take the top spot!

We at the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust endeavor to preserve and nurture the natural beauty of the Moraine forever. Together with our donors, we raise crucial funds to protect properties across our Oak Ridges Moraine. Our staff, neighbours, and volunteers have all played an important role in taking care of these properties through management and stewardship for over 20 years.

In 2021, our amazing All-Star birders will not only battle for top-spot, they will also inventory birds on our protected properties to ensure we are maintaining adequate habitat for the wildlife present. You can help them win top birder by contributing what you see at home!
