Bird Fanatics Donate Funds
The Bird Fanatics of Idaho hold an annual IMBD bird-a-thon to raise funds for bird conservation and education. This year, they have chosen to support IMBD 2011 education materials that focus on reaching new bird enthusiasts and conservationists. Our thanks to the enthusiastic team members, Poo Wright-Pulliam, Jean Seymour, Kathleen Cameron, and Dave Spaulding, for their generous donation.|
|IMBD 2011 Theme Votes Are In!|
| The proposed theme for IMBD 2011 is a focus on introducing new participants to birds and bird conservation in wild places. Over 200 votes were submitted, and the results are in.|
Voters like this theme (92%), and we received comments such as, I can see lots of tie ins for youth, I absolutely love it, and I am excited about this topic. We also received many suggestions for future themes, including concern about addressing the impacts of the Gulf oil spill on birds. In the coming year, we will follow-up by posting these ideas and giving you another opportunity to share your opinion. In the next month, you will have the opportunity to vote on a title for the 2011 theme and to take part in the development of materials.
We appreciate your comments and participation...keep the great ideas and suggestions coming!
