You're Invited to our "Acres for Owls" Social!

Bring your friends and family to meet a rare Short-eared owl and other raptors up close!  Learn about FIBA's work to protect these endangered owls and other at-risk grassland birds in your own back yard. All proceeds will go toward our "Acres for Owls" land campaign to conserve critical habitat for New York State's endangered and threatened grassland birds. 

Hosted by: Mary Beth & Joe Wagner
DATE:  Sunday, August 5th     TIME: 11 am - 2 pm
LOCATION:
31 Webster Ave., Glens Falls, NY 12801
Light refreshments will be available!
$20 minimum donation per family

Current Campaign:  64 acres
We've raised $65,000 of $125,000 needed to purchase 64 acres of critical habitat in the heart of the Washington County Grasslands Important Bird Area (IBA). Located in the viewshed of our Alfred Z. Solomon Grassland Bird Viewing Area, this land is prime habitat for breeding and wintering grassland birds. We must close on this parcel by December 31, 2018.

The Challenge: An anonymous donor has agreed to match up to $1,000 of every dollar donated after the first $1,000. He hopes this will help us reach our goal of $5,000 for this social. Help us purchase and protect this critical habitat before it is sold for development!

For more information, visit our Facebook event page at: https://fiba.us/OwlSocial or call 727-743-5543. We look forward to seeing you there!
