Just steps from the beautiful Kimberlin Center building at Audubon Greenwich, the gateway to nature exploration for tens of thousands of visitors each year, lies hundreds of acres of refuge for people and wildlife alike. Bobcats, fishers, minks, marbled salamanders, Northern Saw-whet Owls, and scores of other wildlife call our sanctuaries home and provide inspiration for many a wide-eyed child.
Protecting these pockets of wild places—and inspiring the wild child in all of us—is at the heart of our work at Audubon. And we are currently taking on one of our greatest conservation threats at Audubon Greenwich—invasive plants!
Our native plants are being choked out by aggressive alien plants across our sanctuaries, and the wildlife that depends on native plants are losing critical sources of food, shelter, and nesting habitat. In response, we are launching an intensive invasive species management plan on our sanctuaries.
With your support, we can make a significant impact from now through December 31, 2020. Thanks to a generous challenge grant in support of this project, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $61,000. This funding will go a long way in helping to restore habitat that birds, other wildlife, and people all depend upon.
Please Help Today and Take Part in the Native Habitat Restoration Matching Challenge!
Or make your contribution by downloading and filling out the giving form and mailing it in with a check (with “Native Habitat Restoration Challenge” on the memo line) or with your credit card information to: Audubon Greenwich, 613 Riversville Road, Greenwich, CT 06831.
There are two ways to have your gift matched! Gifts of $1500 or less will be matched dollar for dollar and will be applied directly to support the restoration of the 25-acre area (in red on the map below). Gifts greater than $1500 will be applied to our Land Stewardship Endowment Fund to ensure the long-term stewardship of this restored habitat, and will be eligible for a 1:3 match.
