If you aren't already a member of Audubon, join our chapter during the month of August and you could win some nice goodies!
Why does membership matter? We are a chapter of the National Audubon Society, and our mission is, "Connecting people with nature, conserving and restoring natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and other wildlife." We achieve this through education, conservation, environmental leadership, and community involvement.
Our regular readers know that we offer a variety of opportunities to learn about birds from experts in the field, and also how to create welcoming environments for birds with creative landscaping, native plants, water features, and feeding stations. And even now, when our activities have been curtailed due to the worldwide pandemic, we offer actionable information via our website, our social media outlets, and in our monthly newsletters on how you can enjoy and support birds at home, in your yard, and in your community.
Duval Audubon Society can keep you informed of current issues and how you can make your voice heard. Your support helps us stand up for birds, defending the stable habitat that they – and we all – require. When you join us, you will be joining a community of people, not only across northeast Florida but also across the nation, who care about creating a bright and sustainable future for birds and the environment. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to protect birds right in your backyard.
So if you are not currently a member of Audubon, we encourage you to join! Everyone who joins Duval Audubon during the month of August will be eligible for the drawing, and the winner will receive an Audubon tote bag and coffee mug, a cool new ball cap with our Duval Audubon logo, and a copy of National Audubon Society's The Sibley Guide to Birds.
Join now, for a chance at a great prize package and the satisfaction of knowing that your support is critical in protecting the birds we all love so much.
