Bennett Birding Classic
Bennett Birding Classic – “For the Backyard Birder who wants to venture a little further afield.”
The Bennett Birding Classic is a joint activity of the Natural History Society of PEI and Island Nature Trust named in honour of the late Neil Bennett, a passionate Island naturalist. Bennett was also an important volunteer with the early years of the PEI Piping Plover Guardian Program and member of the Nature Trust’s Board of Directors.
The Bennett Birding Classic is an opportunity to get involved in bird watching at any level. The Classic also helps to gather important information on fall species in PEI, while raising funds to secure their habitat.
Teams can travel to any part of PEI and spend up to 24 hours in the quest to find as many species as possible. Teams will compete to break the autumn record of 107 species found in this count.
The 2016 Bennett will take place on September 24th.
