The New York State Atlas team is planning an exciting new event for this
June: the first-ever Big Atlas Weekend
<>! This event
will be a fun way for birders across the state to focus on breeding birds,
build birding skills, and come together as a birding community. There will
also be a chance to win prizes in different Atlas categories.

If you're missing the big day competitions or you just love to bird with a
purpose, this is the event for you!

You don't have to be an expert to participate. We have designed challenges
and prizes (free courses of your choosing from Cornell's Bird Academy) for
birders of all skill levels designed to focus your atlasing where we need
it most.

Plus, there will be a friendly competition between four states that are
currently conducting atlases: Maine, Maryland-DC, New York, and North

Mark your calendar and plan to go atlasing between June 25 and June 27 so
New York can claim bragging rights for the inaugural Big Atlas Weekend!

Happy atlasing!
