Make your gift today to ensure Birding is for Everyone! 

When you make a gift to Tahoma Audubon, you help to ensure birding and connecting to nature is accessible to everyone.

Each year, Tahoma Audubon offers more than 100 field trips, events and classes that lead people from all different ages, backgrounds, and birding experience from awe to action on behalf of birds, other wildlife and their habitats. 

Help us continue and grow these opportunities in 2018 by making a gift today.

We also have a new opportunity that leverages every dollar we raise in this campaign! Point Ruston, our newest corporate partner, has offered a dollar-for-dollar match up to $25,000 for every dollar raised this year by this campaign! This means that for every dollar you give this year in response to this campaign, up to $25,000 will be matched by Point Ruston, so your support will go even further!

Last year, donors made it possible to:

  • Partner with other environmental groups to stop the world’s largest methanol plant at the Port of Tacoma.
  • Revitalize educational efforts with the new Thelma Gilmur Education Committee.
  • Bring kids to nature, like the students who came to Morse Wildlife Preserve to monitor saplings they planted the previous fall.
  • Kick off an initiative to better engage 20- and 30-year-olds who reflect the racial diversity of Pierce County.
Join us in stewarding the path from awe to action on behalf of people, birds, other wildlife and their habitats.

Your gift ensures a brighter future for all of us.

A special message from our President

In May 2016, I had a special opportunity to help survey Red Knots at Grays Harbor on the Washington coast. The Red Knot is a remarkable bird, migrating hundreds of miles and relying on the availability of just a few resting places. Grays Harbor is an essential refueling stop on these birds’ spring migration.

As I set up to survey, the air was crisp, the sun was angling over the nutrient-rich mud, and the tide was way out. It was so quiet I could have been the last human in the world.

Even so, I was certainly not alone. As the tide slowly rose, Red Knots marched along with it, feeding at the water’s edge. Soon I was practically surrounded by the beautiful and vulnerable birds I was trying to count. 

Then, for some reason, I paused. I stepped back from my scope and put down my pencil. There I was, in the midst of hundreds of shorebirds that had flown hundreds of miles, counting on this place to be here. I stood in awe.

As a member of Tahoma Audubon’s Conservation Committee, I certainly knew of our efforts to help protect Grays Harbor from the construction of oil export terminals. But standing among those birds I feltwhy all of us have a responsibility to protect important habitats like this.

And it does take all of us. At its core, Tahoma Audubon is not as much an organization as it is people—you and me—coming together because we care.

We care that places like Grays Harbor and Morse Wildlife Preserve continue to exist, that birds continue to find the habitats they need to thrive, and that people continue to connect with and enjoy access to nature.

Please join me in connecting people with nature by making a gift today. Your gift will transform relationships with nature through education, conservation and recreation. 

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place.
