The 20th Annual Montezuma Muckrace will be on September 16-17, 2016.

This Big Day competition begins at 7:00 PM Friday 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.

The complex includes the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge, the NYSDEC Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area and the Montezuma Audubon Center. The higher purpose behind the fun is raising funds for the Friends of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. Last year the total raised was $11,500.

There will be five categories in which to compete:

  1. Competitive
  2. Low-carbon (no cars used)
  3. Recreational
  4. Family/Mentor
  5. Photo (team with photos of the most species wins)
