Title I schools have over 75% of their students qualify for free or reduced lunch
We are reviving BOTH programs. We want all members to have the opportunity to help clean up our community, reduce plastics and give some of our youths the opportunity to enjoy birds in the outdoors. You can help reduce the use of plastic beverage containers, collect aluminum cans, and bring the cans to our outdoor birding events.
Instead of using money from recycling cans to support chapter operations, we propose using the funds to finance field trip buses. Every truckload (Jim’s pickup truck) of collected cans could be worth up to $50. It may take many truckloads to fund even just one bus, but every bit will help.
How can you help? Let's get involved.
- Switch from plastic to aluminum and keep the aluminum cans out of your recycle or trash bin.
- Encourage your friends and family to support your effort.
- Collect cans during your walks or other outdoor activity.
- Create your own community clean-up events and collect the aluminum cans. Think big.
- Bring your collected cans to a Red Rock Audubon birding event for Jim. To reduce our project’s carbon footprint, we will choose and designate a can drop-off location monthly. The drop-off location will be communicated to you through our monthly newsletter and on social media.
- If Jim cannot attend a particular birding event – a volunteer will take the cans.
