Give to Mare Island Heritage Trust Flyway Festival

Hi there, I’m Myrna Hayes, Founding President of the Mare Island Heritage Trust and the Co-founder and Director of the San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival. Will you make a donation of any amount to help us fund this year’s Flyway Festival? After 3 years since we had held an In-Person Wildlife Expo during our Flyway Festival traditionally headquartered on Mare Island, we HELD A LIVE EVENT in Feb 2023. Let’s DO IT AGAIN! Since we are no longer able to generate funds year round from operating the Mare Island Preserve that helped underwrite and keep the Flyway Festival free, we really need your support again this year to jumpstart the upcoming Flyway Festival February 9-11, 2024. Thank you for giving to our land trust who with you has forged a wildlands community of people bonded together to celebrate our special Mare Island wilderness (wild near us). This Flyway Festival will be our 29th. It will mean so much to us that you will help us produce it in February and keep it free! I kept this lovely little quote for myself. And, because it means so much to me, I am sharing it with you.
"Somewhere a tree remembers you because it enjoyed your company.
Somewhere a dandelion is alive and feeding a bumble because you blew on one to make a wish.
We all make a difference in the world. For most of us it is a tiny difference, but oh how adorable that difference is. (Facebook post: The Unusual Witch)
I thank you again, for the difference you make. For this earth. And, for this year's Flyway Festival. Myrna
