LCAS Fall Fundraiser
Our fundraising season is currently underway and we have had some amazingly generous donations to LCAS this season. Thank you all so much! Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will support the 2017 Golden Eagle Migration Survey (GEMS) project. Your support will enable us to continue to partner with Montana Audubon, USFS and FWP, and our collective efforts to census raptor populations in the Big Belt Mountains.
This year an anonymous donor has offered to make a matching donation to the project. The donor has graciously offered up to $2000 in matching funds! Please help us achieve our goal of receiving the entire matching grant. Your donations help support field technician hiring, housing, fuel costs (gas, propane and generator fuel), final report preparation and technician supplies (data gathering equipment).
Please make your check payable to Montana Audubon (LCAS/GEMS in the memo line) and bring them to our monthly meeting. Can’t make the meetings? No problem! Just log into the DONATE site at eaglemigration.org. All donations are 100% tax deductible and donors will receive a tax donation receipt. Thank you in advance for your incredibly generous support! See you at the November (or December) meeting!
