Subject: [mou-net] 2018 Year of the Bird
Hello MOU members and MOU-net subscribers,

The Minnesota Ornithologists' Union joins over 100 other organizations in
celebrating 2018 Year of the Bird, which marks the 100-year anniversary of
the passage of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This is one of the most
important pieces of legislation ever passed granting protection to our
birds. 2018 Year of the Bird aims to educate the public on the wonder,
science, and conservation of birds and provides actions we can all take to
help them in a changing world.

If you're on Facebook, be sure to LIKE the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union
page @MNornithU to stay up-to-date with the 2018 Year of the Bird campaign
and related items. Much of that content will be posted to this listserve as
well in case you aren't on Facebook.
