Hello Vermont Birders,
Recently, a small group of us has been working to put together a new
global birding initiative _www.pledgetofledge.org_
The goal is to popularize the sport of birding worldwide. We believe the
best way to do this is to ask passionate birders to spread the word to
non-birders and take them out birding. We’re going to dedicate two weekends a
year to encourage birders to take a neighbor, a friend, family member, local
kid or anybody else out birding – ‘fledging’ a new birder! By getting more
people to appreciate birds, we can encourage more people to support bird
conservation at the local/regional and worldwide level.
The kick-off weekend is set for August 24-26th 2012. This event aims to
unite people and organizations in birding and conservation. The success of
this movement will depend on one thing, YOU. We can all take one person out
birding. Pledge to Fledge will provide the social network to share your
story, photos and videos with others, making an even bigger impact.
Please join us on August 24-26th 2012 to make a difference.
Dave Magpiong, Richard Crossley, Danielle and Michelle Mohilef, Keith
