The Kiptopeke Challenge, which began in 1996, is an annual team birding competition and fund-raising event, held in late September, at the height of migration. Prizes, including bronze bird trophies, are awarded in four categories: 24-hour, 3-hour, Youth and Special Venue, which includes areas not normally open to the general public. There is no entry fee. If you would like to form a team, be placed on an existing team, sponsor a team, donate prizes or just learn more, contact KC Coordinator Dave Youker at
