All interested members of the community are invited to attend the annual meeting and membership drive of Birding Drives Dakota at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Lantern Room, Jamestown Business Center, Jamestown.
This nonprofit organization was formed to position North Dakota as a premier destination for birders and others pursuing nature-based activities, to foster good stewardship and to promote public awareness and appreciation of North Dakota’s abundance of nature-based resources. Five levels of annual membership area available from student memberships of $10 up to $100 for businesses that also includes a Web link. Membership dues help support the mission of Birding Drives Dakota but are also used to support the Annual Potholes and Prairie Birding Festival, June 3-7, 2009, in Jamestown. This festival attracts attendees from across the United States.
Since its inception in 2003, Birding Drives Dakota has successfully branded the Carrington-Jamestown areas as a world-class birding destination. Inclusion in the internationally-published book, “Fifty Places to Go Birding Before You Die Experts Share the World’s Greatest Destinations” and the New York Times bestseller, “1000 Places to See Before You Die: A Traveler’s Life List” testify to the strides the organization has made in positioning itself as a worthy birding region.
Anyone interested in birding or promoting this area as a nature-based destination for travelers is asked to come to the meeting where there will be for hors d’oeuvre and a chance to learn more about Birding Drives Dakota.
