That's right! The Howard County Bird Club has contributed over $85,000 to help preserve habitat and promote conservation—and your contributions and seed purchases have made it possible. Individual contributions and profits from the seed sale have gone to local, state, national, and international organizations to promote the knowledge, development, protection, and conservation of bird life and other naturally occurring species and their habitats.
