Lahontan Audubon Society kicked off our Fall Fund Drive 2015 campaign on October 15.
LAS works hard to improve the quality of life for Nevada’s birds and wildlife. Our dedicated volunteers, (80-plus strong this year, who gave more than 4600 hours of their time) focus enthusiastically on birding, education, and conservation.
This year we reached over 1500 school children with educational programs about birds and other wildlife and their habitats through our classroom visits, field trips to Washoe Lake and a variety of other activities. We reached out to about 1000 adults through our 23 field trips, Birds of the Truckee Meadows classes, general meeting programs, and a variety of talks to local organizations. Another 1000-plus adults and children stopped by the LAS table full of taxidermy mounts of birds at four public venues.
On the conservation site, LAS continued to track bills at the Nevada Legislature with the potential to affect birds and wildlife. Conservation and habitat improvement for the Greater Sage-Grouse was a primary focus. LAS was successful in its efforts to convince the City of Reno to reconsider their original plans to remove the island at Virginia Lake last October by stressing the public value of the opportunity to observe nesting cormorants and egrets on the island, as well as the more than 100 bird species that visit the lake year-round.
Please help us to continue to expand our education and conservation mission in the coming year. Your contribution, in whatever amount, will be most appreciated. All funds donated are used locally to support our mission of education and conservation for birds. All donations are tax-deductible. Suggested levels of support are below.
