Lanyard Donation to the Illinois Audubon Society

September 21, 2011

Million Lanyard GiveAnother organization has been selected to receive lanyards as part of the’s Million Lanyard Give program. Through the program, businesses and non-profit organizations receive overrun or surplus lanyards in an effort to better a program or event. Recently, the Illinois Audubon Society received 75 blank lanyards to better their environmental education program.

The Illinois Audubon Society is a non-profit, member-run conservation organization that works to protect and restore natural areas in Illinois. Located in Springfield, their mission is to educate people about the purpose and value of their dedicated work. Their educational program extends to all ages and covers all aspects of learning to appreciate and conserve natural areas. Most of the young classroom visitors are from economically challenged households, and these trips throughout the property’s trail system are often their only exposure to the woods. Before the students head out, they are given a small, handheld magnifying glass to use for the duration of the visit. These donated lanyards will be used to hold the magnifying glasses, replacing the strings that were once used and eliminating “string duty,” which was the tedious task of untangling the strings before each visit.

A huge thanks to the Illinois Audubon Society for their incredible efforts to educate people and, especially young students, on the importance of nature conservation and restoration. We hope all of your visitors appreciate your great service.  Find out more about their program by visiting their website, and be sure to stop by their Facebook page for the latest updates and news.
