Welcome to Big Green Day, a blog dedicated to publishing Green BIG Day accounts and records, and discussing the trivia, triumphs and travesties of green BIG Days. There are no 'accepted' standards for 'Green' Big Days, and the results are not recognized or published by ABA, so we've developed some guidelines and definitions (see right hand sidebar) to encourage the establishment of some baseline records. For the time being please use the comment tool below for providing your thoughts on the site, and email your record submissions and accounts to birdtours@altacal.org . Until I've enabled the blog to allow guest authors I'll copy and paste your Green Big Day accounts.

Green Big Day Challenge 2011

Green Birding Fans ! Green Big Day Fanatics !! Please see this invitation from Scott Smithson to join his Green Big Day competition and don’t forget to email me the results of your county or state Green Big Day for posting of your record.

"If you are into birding and conservation or both, you may be interested in forming a team and competing in The Green Big Day, kicking off April 23 and ending May 8, 2011! Check out www.greenbigday.org to sign up (free) or search green big day on Facebook. You don't need to be a super birder to do this, and a bunch of Green Big Day county records are just waiting to be set. Just form a small team of 2 or more, sign up at the website, go birding for a 24 hour period without using any gasoline (hiking, biking, kayaking, etc.), and submit your results by May 15.”

“This event is not a fundraiser per se, but participants can raise money on their own (bird-a-thon style) for their favorite non-profits. I encourage you to pass the word so we can see green big days happening all over the country this spring!”
