We are off and running toward our goal of $10,000 to support the West Valley Wetlands project! As you can see by the thermometer, we are over half-way there! To all of you who have donated so far, THANK YOU! Whether you have sent a large donation or put $1 in the “donation duck” at our general meetings, we consider you to be generous. Together, we will provide a safe place for all of the many birds that use the West Valley ponds, a protected staging area for Sandhill Cranes to prepare for their trips south, and a place for humans to easily watch birds all year round. Watch our thermometer rise by next month, too. Flathead Audubon is proud of our members’ generosity and our ability to make such a major difference for our Valley’s wildlife!
