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.

Note for 2019

Last year we introduced the CommunityFunded fundraising platform for the Birding Cup and we had a wonderful response: teams raised more money than ever before. Each team gets a customized webpage to share with fun information about your team! Visitors can easily donate, see totals raised by all teams, and share the link on social media.

After completing this form, you’ll receive an email from a platform called CommunityFunded with login information for CommunityFunded. If your team had a page on CommunityFunded last year, you have the option to make edits to that page. Questions about this fundraising platform may be directed to Justin Raymond  at
