The nonprofit Houston Audubon designed and launched a new conservation license plate sponsored by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. A committee of 14 local conservation enthusiasts selected the Eastern Meadowlark to feature because this species is in need of conservation action, and the habitat is one that Houston Audubon is committed to restoring. Photographer Alan Murphy provided the photo of an Eastern Meadowlark. Lead sponsors are Heather and Bob Westendarp, and supporting sponsors are Joni Shereda and Brian McKenna and Don Quaintance. Pictured is bird and native plant enthusiast Sarah Flournoy, who serves on Houston Audubon’s board of advisors. To order, visit houstonaudubon.org/licenseplate. See Houston Audubon’s website for details about its upcoming fundraising dinner, the Avian Affair, which takes place Oct. 21 at The Revaire. 

Editor's note: Sept. 18-25, 2021 is Houston Audubon's Bird Week, a celebration of the important role Houston plays in the journey of billions of migratory birds and the everyday lives of resident birds; there will be a series of virtual and in-person events around our region's birds and wildlife.
