Community Support

We so appreciate the commitment of community members, businesses and area organizations to support our mission of  public awareness and involvement in nature through education, conservation and eco-tourism.

Matagorda County Birding Nature Center operates on revenues consisting of entrance fees, event fees, memberships, fundraisers, grants and donations.  The 501(c)(3) is managed predominantly with volunteers and a working board of directors.

Please consider partnering with us through an annual membership.

Volunteers

KIOSK ATTENDANTS    The Kiosk is manned 100% by volunteers. We have several time slots available for those preferring indoor, air conditioned positions.

Projects

CABINS  Plans are being made on two cabins that will be built inside grain bin #5.  We have eight grain bins that were built by John Woolsey that are now being used for maintenance and storage.

We will be encouraging ecotourism in our county and look forward to hosting friends and family with this project. To support this project simply note ‘CABINS’ on your donation form or check.
