Stepping Up for the Celery Farm

I thought this might be helpful for anyone still wanting to step up for the Celery Farm. We had 75 bird species!

Hi everyone!
Our two-day, annual bird inventory and fundraiser is this weekend. We're seeing some more birds moving through - a Palm Warbler and a Yellow Warbler made appearances yesterday. And so far, the forecast is looking good.
Our Treasurer, Kurt Muenz tells me we're below last year's pledges and donations, so please help. We do not receive any financial assistance from the borough of Allendale, so we depend on financial support from our members and the birding community. 
For the pledge/donation information, please see below.
Stepping Up For The Celery Farm Pledge Form – 2022 
Send your pledge by e-mail to Kurt Muenz: [email protected]. If you do not have email, you can mail your pledge to Kurt Muenz, 25 Berry Place, Glen Rock, NJ 07452 
Yes, I want to support Stepping Up by making a pledge per bird species seen. I understand that 60 to 80 species may be recorded, however, the total could be higher if conditions are ideal. 
My pledge is: __$1/species __$.75/species __$.50/species __$.25/species $___/species
