A BIG THANKS TO VORTEX OPTICS
Lahontan Audubon Society owes a huge thank you to Vortex Optics, who each year, for the last 5-plus years, have repaired a box full of well-used (some damaged) LAS binoculars that were used by the 500 or so elementary schoolchildren who attended the LAS field trips at Washoe Lake State Park.
Vortex has never charged LAS a penny for this terrific service and has even paid return shipping back to us.
We encourage anyone who may be looking for binoculars to check out Vortex Optics (www.vortexoptics.com). They have a great variety of binoculars in a large price range and provide amazing service.
Thanks so much, Vortex.
