Migratory Bird Day
May is right around the corner and this year's Migratory Bird Day Event will be on Saturday May 9th! I know that last year was pretty chilly and grey, but I have high hopes that this year will be sunny and mild!
Despite the cold weather, last year we almost doubled attendance to nearly 250 people. That is a great indicator that the news about Bird Day is spreading! I am hoping we will top 300 this year and maybe we'll almost double attendance again! If the weather cooperates, I think this is more than possible.
I need to get an idea who would like to help out this year. If you are on the fence, please remember that the success of Bird Day depends on you. I certainly can't do it by myself! Don't worry about what you want to do just yet. we can work all that out later. I just need to know if you plan to help. As usual, the time commitment will be from about 9:00 am to about 2:00 pm on the day of the event.
If you would like to help out, please let me know I will need to put in a t-shirt order and thus I will need your choice of Women's or Unisex and then the size.
The t-shirts this year are very nice so there won't be any hassle of having them made and then having them fall apart!! Here is a pic below.
Please let me know ASAP so I can put in my order for IMBD supplies.
Thanks in advance for your help!
