Young people are the key to the future of our country. It is their inheritance we are spending and they need to care about how carefully we are stewarding it. They have a great stake in it. Please help us with your financial support.
Audubon Adventures provides classrooms with environmental education prrograms. They cost about $50.00 per class. Will you sponsor a class?
Books to Schools. We are providing environment oriented books to four schools in the area this year at a cost of $350.00 per school. Will you help?
Volunteers. Your help with any of our activities is needed. The more volunteers we have, the less each of us has to do.
