Dear Colleage, Friend, Teacher, Scout Leader, Birder...other potential
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED:
We are currently working on developing a business plan for the Sabal
Palm Audubon Center and Sanctuary in Brownsville, Texas. We have a
simple questionnaire which we would appreciate a response to by this
weekend from "potential users" of our facility.
We are about to embark on a capital campaign for major improvements to
our education and visitor center and an enhancement of the educational
programs which we offer. This information will be vital in our
strategic planning process.
We also invite you to provide any other input which you may like to
share and hope that you will want to become involved with us as we make
Sabal Palm Audubon Center and Sanctuary a "showcase" for nature centers,
birding and environmental education.
FOR ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL ME AT ONE OF THE NUMBERS LISTED BELOW, OR
COMMUNICATE OVER THIS MEDIUM. PLEASE ASSIST BY CIRCULATING THIS TO
WHOMEVER YOU FEEL APPROPRIATE.
