Aiken Audubon does not charge dues. There is no fee for our field trips, aside from entrance fees charged by a destination. And all our programs are free.
On the other hand, we often pay our speakers. We support bird-related research. We have donated toward bird-related displays at both of our local nature centers. And we help underwrite educational opportunities such as the bird banding station at Chico Basin Ranch.
Where does this money come from? Donations from people like you. And fundraisers. In the past we sold calendars featuring the work of our Aiken photographers. Now we are selling hats.
Where else can you get a lovely baseball cap embroidered with our very own Aiken’s Western Screech Owl, “Wes”?
Hats are available in eight colors—black, burgundy, light stone, navy, red, royal blue, stone, and white.
The cost is only $20, and all profits benefit Aiken Audubon. They are available at all meetings or order from Kathy Minch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
