THE STORY:

Thank you for checking out the Rick Mosley Hair fundraiser page for Aveda Earth Month 2013!

Our salon is raising money for an amazing organization, Audubon Mississippi River Initiative.  Our goal is to raise $3,000 and we'll need your help to get there. 

Here's how Audubon works for clean water in Iowa

SAVING WETLANDS

Why are wetlands important?

  • Wetlands prevent flooding by holding water like a sponge – this helps keep river levels normal and filters and purifies surface water
  • Many bird species use wetlands for migration or reproduction – for example, herons nest in large old trees, but need shallow areas to wade for fish and aquatic life

How is Audubon helping to save wetlands?

  • By engaging our grassroots network of Audubon members in Iowa to help ensure that laws remain in place to protect water quality

 

PROTECTING RIVERS 

Why are rivers important?

  • Rivers and their floodplain forests play an important part in the water cycle, acting as drainage channels for surface water
  • Birds and people depend on healthy river ecosystems for food and drink
  • How is Audubon helping to protect rivers?
  • Audubon works one-on-one with landowners to help them improve water quality in thousands of acres of floodplain forests

 

RESTORING MARSHLANDS 

Why are marshlands important?

  • Shallow marshlands filter sediments and nutrients from the water before it enters open channels
  • Marshlands are the river’s productive fish and wildlife nurseries

How is Audubon helping to restore marshlands?

  • Together, Aveda and Audubon are supporting habitat restoration work within Iowa State Wildlife Areas by providing much needed maintenance on old flood gates and removing drainage tiles to restore the marshland’s ecological function
