December 2017 | News from the Nest

Audubon New York's monthly newsletter, featuring conservation updates from our statewide network.

Dear friend,

 As 2017 winds down, the tremendous support from our members continues to encourage us. We look forward to soaring into 2018 with our dedicated donors, volunteers, and friends standing with us and our efforts to ensure a greener future for birds and people. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are more than halfway to reaching our year-end fundraising goal of $20,000. If you’re curious as to the kind of specific work the money raised supports, click here to find out and to contribute.

Another great way to help out Audubon and the birds this holiday season is to participate in the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, the longest-running wildlife census in the world. Between December 14th and January 5th, tens of thousands of bird-loving volunteers will participate in counts across the Western Hemisphere. The data collected by participants continues to contribute to one of only two large existing pools of information notifying ornithologists and conservation biologists about what conservation action is required to protect birds and the places they need. For more information, and to find out where you can participate in a count near you, click here!
