Ames Reads Leopold
Big Bluestem Audubon is a supporter of AMES READS LEOPOLD. Join guest readers as we explore the conservation and land ethic writings of Aldo Leopold. His most famous work, A Sand County Almanac, published in 1949, is still popular with naturalists and writers alike. Readers will share essays from this book, his other books and from other like-minded writers. From 2-4 at the Ames Library.
Let's raise $5000 this year for habitat, birds and nature education! Birdathon is a 24-hour birding and fundraising event, held during the peak of migration. EVERYONE can participate, whether you are out in the field from before dawn until after dark as part of a team. on your deck counting backyard birds with friends, or at your grandson's graduation. Donors support Birdathon teams and help make this Big Bluestem's biggest annual fundraiser by far... Contact Barb Krumhardt , firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
