Hackensack RiverCreepers Gear Up For

‘06 World Series of Birding

$5000 Matching Fund Pledged


May 13 will mark the Hackensack RiverCreepers’ fifth entry in the New Jersey Audubon Society’s World Series of Birding (WSB). On that day, they’ll take to the woods, marshes, fields and suburbs of our watershed to list as many birds (and raise as much cash) as they can.


The WSB is one of the world’s premier birding events. Each year, participants come to New Jersey - rightly nicknamed “The Crossroads of Migration” - from all around the globe to count birds and raise critical funds for conservation.


Here’s how you can join the team and support the important work of Hackensack Riverkeeper without having to get up at 2:30 AM (!) like the rest of the ‘Creepers:

  • Use the coupon in the newsletter and mail in a per-species pledge to our office. If you do, we’ll multiply our WSB results by the amount you pledged and send you a letter with an SASE for you to return with your tax-deductible donation.
  • Those who wish to can e-mail pledges to Hugh@Hackensack-Riverkeeper.org.
  • If you prefer to make a single amount donation you can do so by mail or at our website. Go to www.HackensackRiverkeeper.org and hit the Click&Pledge icon located at the top left corner. From there, just follow the simple directions.


This year we are the recipient of a World Series of Birding Matching Fund that will match every pledge and donation dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000. Because of this generosity, 50¢ per bird pledges become $1 pledges, $50 donations turn into $100 donations, etc. Help us reach five figures this year!


Pledges and donations of any amount are most welcome and appreciated. However you choose to support the Team, you can be sure that you’re doing your part to help protect, preserve and restore the wildlife habitat of the Hackensack River watershed for now and for always. And you can be certain that your donation will be doubled dollar-for-dollar!
