|IMBD 2011 ~ Go Wild, Go Birding!|
| Go Wild, Go Birding! is the IMBD 2011 title, chosen to highlight our focus on reaching out to involve new youth and adults in learning about birds, birdwatching, and bird conservation. The materials we create for the celebration include a youth activity booklet that may be used to complement your event activities. In addition, we'll highlight other activities designed to engage youth in birdwatching, such as bird clubs and camps. If you have information to share, please send it our way by writing firstname.lastname@example.org. |
Raising Funds for Conservation
| EFTA is developing a way for you to incorporate education, conservation, and fundraising into a single activity. This fall, we will present a national Walk-A-Thon for conservation, providing you and your organization with all the tools you need to host the event. It will be an ideal addition to your IMBD event. As we develop the program, we would appreciate your input. Please take a moment to answer 4 simple questions about this opportunity.|
