Our education activities are basic to performing our mission. The accomplishments of the Flathead Audubon Educational Coordinator have been fantastic. She works with many other conservation organizations in the valley, gives programs at meetings, writes grant applications, and keeps our bird trunks up-to-date, as well as developing additional teaching trunks. The Conservation Education Program consistently reaches literally thousands of Flathead Valley residents, from preschoolers to seniors, each year.
The Conservation Education Program received initial financial support from The Sustainability Fund, without whose support we could never have offered such a variety of educational programs. Flathead Audubon is now responsible for 100% of the cost of the Program, which represents over half of the chapter's annual budget.
Your gift, large or small, helps Flathead Audubon continue and expand the Conservation Education Program. In addition to the salary of the Conservation Educator, the program uses your donations for supplies and materials for our classroom bird trunks, school bus transportation for field trips, posters for Raptor Day, binoculars and bird guides. Conservation Education Program activities are offered valley-wide and all donations are used locally.
Donations may be made anonymously or designated in memory of a deceased loved one or in honor of a special person in your life. Names of donors are published in The Pileated Post. Thank you for your support of Flathead Audubon's mission!
