The Story

Native plants are beautiful signals of health in the world, attracting and sustaining native birds, and improving the environment.  Would you agree with me that this fact is very important to teach in nature education?  I’m Aley Canavan, an Audubon Arizona intern, and I ask you to support an exciting project at Audubon that will make many more native plants thrive—through the purchase and installation of a greatly needed greenhouse.

I’ve been lucky to do my senior internship with amazing people at Audubon.  Helping them raise money for a greenhouse is my senior capstone project at ASU, where I major in Educational Studies and Environmental Education.

The greenhouse would serve as a new focal point for children, families, and many others to actually “do” plant propagation.  Students on field trips and after school would get their little hands dirty as they use cuttings or seeds, grow them in the greenhouse, then plant them in the Rio Salado habitat to provide food and shelter for many birds and other wildlife.  Doing this will keep the restoration going—to build on what others started.  The need is great.  Right now, native plants are starting their lives in little pots all over the Center—even offices—so I want to help my friends consolidate their efforts.  This project is a local expression of National Audubon Society’s Bird Friendly Communities initiative.

Here’s Where You Come In!

I am so proud to be rallying the community to make this dream a reality!

We need to raise at least $3,750.

Your donation of any amount would mean a lot, helping many who would benefit from the greenhouse.  Please give today (it’s super easy) and be part of something wonderful!
