Birdathon 2010 Coming Up Sat. Don’t Forget Frontera Audubon

Frontera’s Spring Fundraising Campaign continues with a funfilled birdathon this Saturday.  There is still time to drop by the Frontera Visitors’ Center and pick up a pledge sheet.  If you don’t have a team, yet … no worries, there’s room on the Home Team, Frontera’s own team led by Michael Delesantro.  Stop by and bird the Thicket and help Frontera realize goals for next year!
