For the birds


In response to your article "Audubon Feathers Fly in Arizona," I want to make it clear that at no time has Desert Rivers Audubon taken a formal position on the land-swap issues described in the article (HCN, 10/12/09). We share many of the same concerns regarding the issues as the other Audubon groups in Arizona. We are a family-oriented organization. Our primary focus is to provide an environment where all age groups can participate in nature activities. All of our efforts focus on birds and other wildlife, the threats to their habitats, and what Audubon can do to preserve these habitats in a healthy condition.
