Make your year-end gift today
HELP SWANS WITH YOUR YEAR-END GIFT TODAY!
Migration is an amazing feat, but it is hard on birds and Trumpeter Swans are no exception. They must expend enormous energy in flight, need to locate safe resting and feeding areas, must avoid power lines and shootings, and ultimately, they must reach areas suitable for overwintering-- habitats with abundant food, safe flight paths, and without lead shot.
You can help these magnificent birds on their journey by making a year-end donation to The Trumpeter Swan Society today.
Trumpeter Swans capture attention virtually every place they visit on migration. With your support, we can convert that attention into educational opportunities that will contribute to the swans’ overwinter survival.
Your year-end gift is vital.
Your year-end donation to The Trumpeter Swan Society will be used to educate and inspire people across North America on the importance of securing and protecting swan habitat throughout the year. Through your gift, you are protecting North America’s Trumpeter Swans and the healthy wetlands on which they depend throughout the winter months and beyond.
Your year-end donation will help Trumpeter Swan conservation through:
- Continuation of Trumpeter Watch, our flagship citizen science program. We receive hundreds of reports each year including new state sightings! Trumpeter Watch is particularly important as Trumpeters pioneer and return to historic wintering areas where community outreach is critical to their survival.
- Providing accurate and science-based information to people wanting to learn more about Trumpeter Swans, their conservation, and biology through our website, our electronic newsletter, Enews, and through our Blog and Facebook page.
- Responding to hundreds of requests for information about Trumpeter Swans for school groups, people seeing Trumpeter Swans for the first time or reporting a swan issue, and local and national conservation groups.
A year-end gift makes a meaningful and beautiful gift in someone's honor or memory. You can also share your love of Trumpeter Swans and their habitats through a gift membership- just in time for the holidays! Just let us know and we'll be sure to send a personal acknowledgment of your thoughtful and caring gift.
