Elegant Trogons value healthy habitat, benefit from good science, and inspire the work of Tucson Audubon. Just like you.

All Together, We Are Southeast Arizona

Dear Friends of Birds,

In the years I’ve been engaged with the Tucson Audubon Society, I can’t tell you how often people have commented to me, “Wow! Tucson Audubon really has a lot going on!” And I have to say, it’s true.

The voice of a long-time birding friend led me to my first view of an Elegant Trogon. I recall hearing “Over this way!” through a mesquite bosque near Patagonia Lake, and soon we were reveling in an astonishingly beautiful bird—its range in the United States limited almost entirely to the Southeast corner of Arizona.

Tucson Audubon’s wide range of activities—its conservation, advocacy, habitat restoration, bird sanctuaries, education, field trips, annual festival, data collection, and scientific enquiry—all work in concert to protect Elegant Trogons, and 329 other bird species that call our region home. When you protect birds, you protect the environment upon which we all depend. When you give people access to the beauty of our region, they fall in love with it, and want to keep it whole and healthy. Maybe it’s not just a question of what we do for birds, but what the birds do for us.

Tucson Audubon believes that Southeast Arizona is a region worth protecting far into the future. We believe that its Sky Island mountain ranges, Sonoran desert landscape, sweeping grasslands, and imperiled waterways are all critical to the survival of its diversity of birds and people.

The world today, globally and locally, is clearly calling on all of us to recognize its needs. All together we will fail or fly. All together, we are Southeast Arizona.

Thank you for your generosity and support.

Sincerely,

Jonathan E. Lutz
Executive Director

Tucson Audubon has always had a strong conservation focus, and all these years I have watched them further conservation of birds and habitat across Southeast Arizona. It is a ceaseless job, but I am glad Tucson Audubon does not tire with its educational outreach efforts.
