The Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) is pleased to announce that the children of Chandler and Eleanor Robbins have presented MOS with a generous gift of property in Garrett County, to be known as the Chandler and Eleanor Robbins Sanctuary at Red Run. In addition, MOS is purchasing additional land to increase the size of the Irish Grove MOS Sanctuary. Part of the purchase price will come from a bequest from the late Chandler Robbins. To fund the remainder of the purchase price for the Irish Grove land, MOS is seeking donations for its Sanctuary Fund. Donated funds will also provide for ongoing maintenance and operations of the new Robbins Sanctuary at Red Run, as well as the other nine MOS sanctuaries across the state. MOS is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
Please consider a donation to the Sanctuary Fund in whatever amount you wish. Enter the amount you wish to donate and, after clicking the “Donate” button, scroll through list and select “MOS Sanctuary Fund”. You may also add a note or comment. Note that unspecified donations will be directed to the MOS Operating Fund or to the Breeding Bird Atlas.
