The Fine Print

See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Benefits of Compost for the Environment

Composting can regenerate poor soils by producing microorganisms that break down organic matter and create nutrient-rich humus, according to data from the Environmental Protection Agency. When used in plant production, compost can suppress plant diseases and pests, clean contaminated soil, prevent storm-water runoff from polluting water sources, and promote higher yields of crops.

The Campaign: Funding Compost Program for Youth

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center can fund equipment, materials, and compost bins to begin a compost program. Each additional $10 raised will fund materials and equipment for the conservation program. The compost program will teach more than 2,800 students how to create their own composter and demonstrate the benefits of recycling organic material. It will also benefit the center by providing a place to channel excess compostable waste and helping to improve the quality of the rocky soils around the Audubon Center compound, which is set on a former gravel mine.

Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center

Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center was founded in 1976, with the goal to conserve natural habitats to help native species flourish and ensure that the skies over future generations would continue to be diversely populated. Today, the center continues this work by connecting local community members with nature and teaching them how to protect it. Montana Audubon's recreational and educational programs, such as afterschool lessons and an Earth Day celebration, employ entertaining efforts to engage the public with the issue of wildlife conservation. The center's 72,000-square-mile swath on the Yellowstone River Basin also serves as an outdoor classroom to expose youth to local ecosystems including riparian zones, grasslands, and forests, and staffers place special focus on bringing underserved populations of young people to learn at the center.
