Fellow birding friends,
Everyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about birds (don't get me started...). For the past few years I have participated in the Massachusetts Audubon Society annual spring bird-a-thon, an attempt to raise interest in and money for conservation projects, particularly those involving birds. These efforts have resulted in great work. In particular, I have support Long Pasture, where efforts directed toward shorebird preservation have been ongoing, as well as numerous other efforts.
I am not a big fan of asking friends for financial support but, on the other hand, when the cause is just it seems pretty reasonable. Mass Audubon does good things for conservation. I know this really well. I hope you'll join me in supporting my efforts to add a bit of money to the goal of conservation.
