We are seeking sponsors to enable us
to continue providing Audubon Adventures (an educational
curriculum that covers ecology and conservation topics
important to our mission) to 3rd-5th grade
classes in Lake and Geauga Counties. These classroom kits
can be used across the curriculum and offer correlations
to National Language Arts and Science Standards. The cost
for an entire class (32 students) is only $45.95
(including shipping and handling). Blackbrook Audubon
relies on Birdathon contributions and Friend’s of
Blackbrook donations to help fund expenses and special
projects such as this. With the start of a new budget
year, the Board finds that we need a little extra help.
Please consider sponsoring one or more subscriptions with
a donation. You can donate online via paypal or checks can
be made out to “Blackbrook Audubon” (designate “Audubon
Adventures” on the memo line) and brought to a
program/meeting or mailed to: Blackbrook Audubon, Box
