Give Our Bluebirds Wings - GivingTuesday

Campaign Ended Dec. 13, 2019

Some private donors have rallied together to make Legacy a deal that we have to share with you. For every dollar you donate to Legacy, it be doubled it! Up to a maximum of $2,000.

For many of us bluebirds signal the arrival of spring. Sadly, their populations have decreased dramatically. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology says bluebird numbers dropped by about 24% between 1966 and 2015. Much of this decline is due to habitat loss.

This fall, in conjunction with international GivingTuesday on December 3, we are launching a special fundraiser to continue our conservation efforts.

This year the focus of our program — Give Our Bluebirds Wings — is two-fold: building more nest boxes to expand our bluebird trail, and enhancing bluebird habitat.


Donate and your name could be drawn for one of more than 35 gifts.

$100 or more: You & a friend travel with Mountain Bluebird expert Ron Reist as he monitors his bluebird trail next year.

$75 or more: Be one of the first 30 people to donate and you are next year’s sponsor of one of Legacy’s bluebird nest boxes. We’ll keep you posted on what’s happening with your feathered family during the breeding season.

$50 or more: Your own bluebird nest box made by Ron Reist.

$25 or more: You could win a set of beautiful bluebird cards by Veronica Reist, one of Legacy’s 2020 calendars or one of these beautiful books by Myrna Pearman:

"Mountain Bluebird Trail Monitoring Guide” 

"Beauty Everywhere — Nature Photo Essays” 

"Backyard Bird Feeding — An Alberta Guide” 

"Nestboxes for Prairie Birds”
