Birding Cup Team Registration

Before you register your Birding Cup team using the form below, please make sure you have read the official Birding Cup rules (PDF).

Teams must follow all Birding Cup rules when participating. Team entries should be submitted no later than four days prior to the start.

Although team entry is free, because this is Shaver’s Creek’s only annual fundraiser, teams are asked to raise at least $100 in donations for The Birding Cup. Teams who raise the most money will be awarded fabulous prizes.

You can also download the official Birding Cup checklist (PDF) to track bird species that you see during the Cup. This completed checklist must be submitted by 7:30 p.m. on Saturday evening at the wrap-up event, held at Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center.

If you have any Birding Cup questions before you register, please contact Doug Wentzel or call 814-865-4123.

New for 2018

Shaver’s Creek is debuting a new fundraising platform for the Birding Cup. Each team will be able to customize a personal webpage with more fun information about your team, see totals raised by all teams, and share their link for easy donations!

After completing this form, you’ll receive an email from a platform called CommunityFunded with login information for our new fundraising platform. These emails will start sending out beginning in April. Questions about this fundraising platform may be directed to Justin Raymond  at
