August FOTESS: For the Birds!

8 years ago
For the Birds

For anyone stopping by who is not already a member of FOTESS (Friends of the Earth Simple Swaps), you will need to become a member in order to sign up for a swap. In order to find out more about membership you can contact Jeanne (sandlapper_rose) or Shirley (sjc48), or post here and we will get in touch with you. We would love to have new members join in the fun! If anyone needs to get in touch with me directly, you can email me at: kchd1030 at gmail dot com

This month's swap is dedicated to our feathered friends, it is For The Birds! If you choose to join in, you will be sending 3 things related to our feathered friends. Examples include: plants that provide food for birds (think: plants that produce seeds or red flowers for hummingbirds), bird feeders, bird notecards, plants with bird names, etc.

Here's our timeline:
Sign-up by August 7
Partners assigned by August 9
Ship your package by August 25

We will also be learning about our North American birds, as well. When you sign up, I'll be assigning an interesting group, or family, of birds for you to read about and tell us about, much like Shirley did with our butterfly swap. There are so many interesting birds that share our space with us. Your task will be to tell us about your family of birds, and then pick your favorite species and tell us why.

And what swap would be complete without games?! I'll be posting some games, too. Stay tuned for those!
