Christmas is coming
Don’t panic just yet
Do think about gifts
Your gift getters get

A perfect gift have we
For your nature lover
This crowning achievement
They’ve yet to discover

With stories of mammals
And birds that are flocking
A perfect gift it makes
But too large for a stocking

It’s packed full of info
From flowers to deer
You’ll learn something new
Each day of the year

Buy for the photos
For our Audubon chapter
Get it for the info
Snag it for the raptor

So go ahead and buy one
Buy one, two, or three
Your loved ones will love you
And (to be perfectly honest), so will we!

You can own this fine calendar by purchasing one at our general meetings, online at our the Flathead Audubon Store, or by visiting many of our brick-and-mortar supporters which can be found here.
