Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends and reflect on the blessings of the last year. Many of us experience renewed hope during the Thanksgiving holiday because we turn our eyes onto what is most important. And YOU are what is most important to all of us at Audubon Texas. We cannot thank you enough for all that you do, and for all that you have made possible through your generosity and support.
YOU have been vitally important to conserving and restoring the rich biodiversity of our great state of Texas. By investing in Audubon’s thoughtful blend of science, education and policy expertise, you are playing a pivotal role in saving birds and the ecosystem upon which they depend.
YOU have helped us build an informed and inspired constituency for the environment in future generations. The incredible support you provide to our diverse programming for kids at our three Audubon centers across the state help prepare the next generation for preserving the natural heritage of Texas.
YOU have made a significant impact on the birds we all love including Golden-cheeked Warblers, Roseate Spoonbills, Whooping Cranes, and Sprague’s Pipit, and the habitats they depend upon throughout their lifecycle. Your support of Audubon Texas ensures that critical bird and wildlife habitat is safeguarded so that future generations may enjoy our rich natural resources.
The Audubon network of which you are a part has the knowledge, power and influence to make a significant and lasting contribution to protect the rich ecology of the state we love and the birds who make it their home. While conservation action is often something we do as individuals, giving THANKS is something we do together.
With my warmest regards, and best wishes for a
Happy Thanksgiving, and healthy holiday season,
Vice President, Central Flyway

Over the last 100 years, urban sprawl has transformed 150 million acres of farmland and native habitats across the United States into buildings, hardscape, and 40 million acres of highly manicured lawns. Filled with exotic plants, these urban landscapes no longer support the healthy, functioning ecosystems that birds and wildlife need.
