Supporting Yolo Audubon

We are so pleased that the grand prize for our fall fundraiser for 2014 is a printed plate of waterfowl by Keith Hansen for Birds of the Sierra Nevada. Keith generously donated this print to Yolo Audubon Society last year. We are getting it framed and it is going to look stunning-I hope to have it available to display at our October program meeting. Be sure to drop in and thank Keith if you happen to be birding near his gallery in Bolinas!

As in past years, this drawing will be held during the Bird ID Workshop held every December prior to the Christmas Bird Count. We very much hope you will join us both at the workshop (December 3rd at 7:30 pm) and at the Count; both are wonderful events that are a testament to the commitment of our members to birds and their habitats and to their conservation. Of course, we also hope you will be there in case you win the grand prize, though you need not be present to win. (Other prizes will be available to those present during the drawing only.)

Many of you will received a mailing with tickets for the drawing enclosed. Please consider making a donation of $20 for the received tickets, write in your name and phone number on the back of the tickets and return them and your donation in the enclosed envelope. (You are under no obligation to buy these tickets.)

Thank you for supporting our efforts to foster an appreciation of birds and other wildlife through educational programs and field trips, bring conservation issues to public awareness, and act to preserve Yolo County bird life and habitat. We couldn't do this without you.

Many thanks, and I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
