Personal Fundraising Page
Last week I was browsing in the Drumlin Farm shop and my eye was caught by the display of a book, "The Lost Words". A poster beside the book explained that the authors had been dismayed when the Oxford Junior Dictionary decided to omit some words to make room for other "words that had more relevance for children today".
The words omitted included clover, acorn, dandelion, fern, heron,newt and wren.
The new words added included analog, blog, broadband, chatroom and voicemail.
Children and adults alike need nature. (go ahead ~ google 'nature and well being') And we need to support places like Drumlin Farm that provide a place to see our food grown, take a walk in the woods and listen to the wind bringing birdsong to our ears.
I know that demands for your attention AND money are many, but I don't know how many more years I have to contribute to Birdathon, so I will ask you to support this effort. We can make a difference...and save wren from extinction! (For those of you who don't know, my granddaughters call me Wren! And yes, those are my amazing granddaughters!)
THANK YOU..........now get off your phone/ipad/computer and go outside....please. Well, maybe donate first so you don't forget. (And the donation page is secure. ) Thank you many times over!
