Conservation is about people working together to protect habitat for birds, other wildlife and a legacy for the future.
Dear Friend of Montana Audubon,
At 6:30 am on a wonderful spring morning, I was awakened by the sweet “alarm clock” of spring, the many different glorious songs of our native birds. For a moment, I reflected on the work we do at Montana Audubon and how your involvement has made our success possible. I immediately made a mental note to remember this gratitude during the holiday season. I am so thankful, not only for the diversity of our native birds and other wildlife, but also for you!
The holidays are fitting times to celebrate the bounty of our land and what it provides us all. It’s also a time to celebrate one another, the people in our lives who make a difference each and every day. Without you, Montana Audubon would not be able to succeed at the vital conservation work we do. We are grateful for your involvement, and we work very hard to put each dollar of every gift to work for successful conservation in Montana. Thank you.
Because of your involvement, we are able to accomplish so much.
Please support Montana Audubon’s conservation work today!
With your help in 2019, we:
Today, we are confronted with increasingly complex challenges, from funding threats to climate change, habitat loss and pollution. The recent “three billion birds study,” in the journal Science, indicated that we’ve lost that number of birds since 1970. But the good news is that most of these losses can be reversed through the aggressive conservation efforts of Montana Audubon and our partners.
Together, we will prevail!
Here’s how we plan to do so, with your continued involvement and support:
Support from you is critical, now more than ever.
Please support Montana Audubon this season of giving with a tax-deductible gift that is personally meaningful to you. When the sweet sound of the spring “alarm clock” starts chirping once again, remember that you play a large part in bird and habitat conservation in Montana through your generous gift.
In advance, thank you for your support!
Yours in Conservation,
Montana Audubon has been a force for conservation in Big Sky country for over four decades. In the policy realm, we’ve defended important environmental laws in the state legislature and helped introduce bills that now protect the birds and other wildlife we all cherish. Our science program helped establish Montana’s Important Bird Area (IBA) network, encompassing millions of acres of critical wetland, sagebrush and grassland habitats across the state. We also perform important research and monitoring on bird species of conservation concern like curlews and black swifts. Another pillar of our work is engaging communities and the next generation of conservationists with outreach and education through nine local Audubon chapters, and at our education center in Billings.
Today, the need for Montana Audubon’s trusted conservation voice and collaborative, science-based approach is as critical as ever. The Montana Audubon Annual Conservation Fund was established as a yearly way for you to support our organization.
The benefits of membership include: receiving our gorgeous, full color biannual newsletter; timely conservation action alerts; invitations to workshops, talks and presentations, and many more! In addition to becoming a Montana Audubon member, your gift to the Annual Conservation Fund will help sustain the overall health of our organization, now and in the future, so we can confront the many emerging threats facing birds and other wildlife – Please give to the Montana Audubon Annual Conservation Fund today.
Support Montana’s native birds, other wildlife and their habitats by making a gift to Montana Audubon. All donations are tax-deductible.
You can make a meaningful impact towards the birds of Montana by simply purchasing a Montana Audubon Bird Habitat license plate.
Montana Audubon participates in “Montana Shares”– a partnership of Montana-based nonprofits devoted to improving the quality of life across big sky country through workplace charitable giving campaigns. Montana Shares has raised over 3 million dollars for Montana nonprofits since 1988, and over 80,000 Montanans (including those in all state and federal offices; city, county and school districts in the major communities; public and private universities and colleges; and many hospitals, healthcare clinics and businesses) are currently offered Montana Shares giving opportunities at their place of employment. Cooperative fundraising through workplace giving is a low-cost, effective way for Montana Audubon to raise needed funds, helping to diversify funding sources, strengthen its financial stability, and more effectively serve the people of Montana.
If you have the opportunity at your workplace, please consider giving to Montana Audubon!
