FLYER Newsletter Has Evolved!

Prairie Woods Audubon Society (PWA) is now free to all! Yes, free for you to download. You no longer need to be a member. Surprising? It is. However, our costs for printing a newsletter was exceeding what we were receiving from National. This meant we could no longer afford many speakers, awarding educational grants, cutbacks on operating expenses and so on. Our mission is to the environment and the community.

To our 1100+ members, this mission will be carried out!

Head on over to our Newsletter page and enjoy!

Members received a postcard explaining our new format. If you wish to receive an email reminding you the newsletter is online on our PWA site, please send us an email with your name to:

Why do this?

This will result in a significant cost savings to the chapter and helps conserve our nation's resources.

NOTICE: Your email address will NEVER be sold or provided to others, not even to National Audubon, as a result of signing up for this service.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to us.
