2013 NestWatch Pledge Drive

Simply put, the NestWatch program would not be possible without the generosity of people like you. Every year, thousands of individuals contribute their valuable time to help scientists better understand the nesting ecology of birds. NestWatchers have gathered information on more than 50,000 nesting attempts over the past 3 years alone! If you were unable to monitor any nests this year, you can still make a huge contribution to our ongoing study of nesting birds by supporting us with a small financial donation.

Because the Cornell Lab is a nonprofit organization, NestWatch is highly dependent on your generosity. We are half way to our goal of raising $4,000 by December 31 to print new NestWatch brochures and to help fund NestWatch seminars and workshops in 2014. More than 24,000 people receive this eNewsletter. If each of you contributes our suggested “nest egg” donation of just $10, we will be able to support much of our operational expenses for years to come. For donations of $25 or more, you will receive a beautiful NestWatch poster! Please consider making a contribution today. We sincerely appreciate your kindness! The future of NestWatch is in your hands.
