Vanguard Partners with Michigan Audubon and the Michigan Young Birder Program

Michigan Audubon

Vanguard USA, global leader in sporting optics, shooting accessories, and photo-video accessories since 1986, has partnered with the Michigan Audubon on its Michigan Young Birder Program.

For every $100 gift to Michigan Audubon, a pair of Orros 8320 binoculars will be donated to young Michigan birders. Binoculars received through this program will be used in many ways:  as donations to chapter-led Young Birder programs across the state, donations to classrooms where birds are a focus of study, and as supporting resources for Michigan Audubon education programs.

“Michigan Audubon is very excited to partner with Vanguard on this program. We have a goal of raising $200,000, which ultimately puts 2,000 pairs of binoculars into the hands of young Michigan birders. Anything we can do that helps get children involved at an early age not only ensures the future of birding, but also instills a belief in conservation,” said Jonathan Lutz, executive director for Michigan Audubon.

Those wishing to donate to the Michigan Audubon can do so here.
