Your Common Ground: 2018 Annual Appeal

For the last six years, the Birds of Vermont Museum has engaged with local artists to present an annual bird-centered community art exhibit. The works are mindfully created; the artists’ visions and voices tell their stories through a variety of expressive media. The 2018 show Common Grounds focused on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) of 1918, now in its 100th year. Despite challenges, the MBTA has brought hope, promise, and conservation success to global citizenry, naturalists, and conservationists, and birds. The show became a small-scale reflection of a global purpose.

Great things require creative community backing: physically, financially, and collaboratively. We work together to imagine, investigate, communicate, and protect birds. Artists, educators, legislators, and conservationists unite in their concern and support for the welfare of migratory birds and all wildlife everywhere.

This collaborative effort created and now maintains the Birds of Vermont Museum, an institution with presence in the scientific, cultural arts, and educational communities. Many people, including you, have never wavered in their belief in the Birds of Vermont Museum and our mission. The Museum relies on this generosity for special programs, day-to-day operations, educational activities, and the care and keeping of Museum lands. We hope you will continue to support us by making a year-end donation today.

As an extra thank you, all donors who give at least $200, received by December 31, 2018, will receive a selection of note cards created by artists who contributed to the Common Grounds show.

Dining to Donate: March 6

Join friends of the Birds of Vermont Museum at Applebee’s of South Burlington on March 6, from 4pm – 9 pm. If you present our flyer to your server, Applebee’s will donate 15% of your check (excluding tip and taxes) to the Birds of Vermont Museum!

Dining to Donate is one way that Applebee’s gives back to their community, by working with non-profit  organizations like the Birds of Vermont Museum. Applebee’s donates 15% of the price of a meal to the Museum as long as the diner presents this flyer and dines on a certain pre-selected day. Our day is March 6th!

By going out to eat that evening, between 4 and 9 pm, at Applebee’s in South Burlington, you will support the Museum’s Bridges to Birds project. All funds collected will help connect people to birds; in particular, the Museum will use these funds towards rebuilding our flood-damaged entranceway and completing an outdoor tree-centered, bird watching and educational space.

This is an informal way to gather as individual families, reconnecting friends, or as a larger group. We will also have a birthday card to sign, celebrating Bob Spear who has just turned 94.

Please feel free to copy the flyers and distribute them personally before March 6th; everyone who dines at Applebee’s and shows the flyer on March 6th will benefit the Museum.

See you there and thank you!
