2024 Event Sponsorship Levels and Benefits

Why should your organization be interested in the Birding Classic?

  • 11.5 million people in Texas participate in wildlife watching (51% of all Texans over the age of 16!).
  • With more than 660 species of birds documented, Texas has richer bird diversity than almost any other state with many of the top birdwatching hotspots, making it the #1 birdwatching destination in the United States.
  • Birders are generally well-educated, have family incomes above the national average, fall between 40 and 65 years of age and are represented equally by men and women.
  • Conservation grants made possible by event sponsors and team registration fees fund year-round conservation projects that benefit wildlife.
  • Each year, youth participation increases and past competitors come back year after year.
