Transcript Chairman's Message This article is about fund raising and giving to organizations that help conserve the birds we spend so much time observing. As I have mentioned ta previous writings and at OG meetings, I would like the OG do a fundraiser to raise money for the purchase or maintenance of bird habitat. However, to date we have not been able to determine an appropriate event to accomplish this. Hopefully, the leadership team will arrive at a program that will be implemented this year or next. As before, I ask for any suggestions you have. One suggestion that I received is the basis for this article. It was suggested that we publish information about organizations where you can contribute to preserving of bird habitat. I will list three organizations below that I believe are vitally important for preserving habitat here on the Upper Texas Coast. These are by no means all the groups that are doing a wonderful job, but they are major players. The first is our own parent, The Outdoor Nature Club (ONC) of Houston. The ONC needs funds to maintain and possibly enlarge the Little Thicket Nature Sanctuary. This sanctuary of 655 acres was begun ta 1950 and has been a natural haven for locally nesting birds since that time. You can send checks to The Outdoor Nature Club, P.O. Box 270894, Houston, Texas 77277-0894. If you wish, you can restrict the use ofthe funds for a) support of particular operating activities, b) acquisition of long-lived assets, or c) use ta a specified future period. If you are a newcomer to the OG and the Outdoor Nature Club, I urge you to visit the LTNS on one of the Visitors Weekend. The next one is November 16-18. This weekend will also include Trail Trimming on Saturday for those who would like to volunteer to work. The second organization is the Katy Prairie Conservancy. This organization's mission is "to protect a sustainable portion ofthe Katy Prairie for the benefit of its wildlife and all Tex- ans forever". There are two ways to give to the Katy Prairie Conservancy. The first is to send funds to their office at 3015 Richmond Ave. Suite 230, Houston, Texas 77098. The second is to participate ta the Katy Prairie Conservancy Bird-a-thon. This fundraiser is the second Christmas Count Bird-a-thon sponsored by the KPC. You pledge a particular amount per species counted during the Cypress Creek Christmas Count. Pledge forms can be obtained on the Internet at www.katyprairie.org or from the office listed above. The final organization is the Houston Audubon Society. This organization maintains a large number of sanctuaries throughout the upper Texas Coast. Some of these we are most familiar with, namely Bolivar Flats Bird Sanctuary, and the High Island sanctuaries of Lewis Smith/Boy Scout Woods and Smith Oaks. We have all birded these areas and enjoyed the miraculous variety of birds they provide habitat for. The HAS has just finished a fundraistag drive that raised over $743,000 to purchase additional acreage contiguous with the Bolivar Flats Bird Sanctuary. Because of the success of this effort, Houston Audubon has expanded the project and is trying to raise enough funds to purchase an additional 750 acres to include Horseshoe Marsh. You can send your contribution to Houston Audubon Society, 440 Wilchester, Houston, Texas 77079. All of these organizations are 501 (3C) tax-deductible entities. I encourage you to consider a donation to any or all of these organizations as the protection of remaining prime bird habitat is a necessity if we are going to continue our hobby and preserve the opportunity for future generations to enjoy this activity as we do. - Skip Almoney
