WE DID A LOT TOGETHER LAST YEAR • WE HAVE MORE TO DO TOGETHER
Dear Birder and ABA Friend,
What a year. I say that with some amount of relief and some amount of exhaustion, but also a great deal of hope going forward. Despite ongoing shortfalls in advertising and events revenue, the ABA has benefited from federal loans and especially the generosity of members like you. In 2020 we launched new digital content and outreach initiatives while preserving and strengthening our existing programs.
As we head into the 2021 Nesting Season, we are especially proud of our robust and growing programs for young birders. The ABA is mentoring and nurturing more teen naturalists than ever before, and the association is in the process of hiring a Young Birder Programs Coordinator. Bird camps are coming back, teens are flocking to our safe and moderated chat groups, and we’re so proud of how young birders are developing into the community leaders of tomorrow.
Memberships alone do not cover the cost of our Young Birder Programs.
Your donation today is vital to supporting hundreds of future leaders in birding, conservation, and science.
