The 21st Annual Montezuma Muckrace will be on September 15-16, 2017.

This Big Day birding competition begins at 7:00 PM Friday and runs for 24 hours. Teams will compete to see who can see the most species within the Montezuma Wetlands Complex in Cayuga, Wayne, and Seneca counties.

There will be 7 categories in which to compete:

  1. Competitive

  3. Low-carbon (no cars used)
  4. Recreational
  5. Family/Mentor
