Photos of Bats

Posted by Liz VanOrstrand on September 15, 2015 11:57 CDT

Margaret Frick is putting together a list of bats in the area, in preparation for the upcoming Bat Training, January 2016. She would love to have more photographic proof of the bats in the area.  If any of our photographers have any bat pictures in and around ABNC, please forward to liz@abnc.org .

Gallery Reminder

Posted by Shawn Gano on August 3, 2015 21:00 CDT

Hello everyone!   I always enjoy looking at the great pictures that are posted in the gallery.  This is just a quick friendly reminder to make sure you have the copyright or that the image is in the public domain (fair use).  Any picture you take yourself is definitely in that category.  If you do spot a image you think might not belong just hit the little "report abuse" button by the image and we will review it.   Thanks!

June 5, 2015

10 more days to vote for Armand Bayou Nature Center in KidsOutAndAbout's 2015 survey of the Top 20 Places to Take Kids in Houston

This is your semi-weekly reminder to encourage your fans to vote for you! The survey closes a week from Monday!

1) KidsOutAndAbout's 2015 Top Places to Take Kids Survey has 10 days left. Anything can happen in those 10 days, so it's important to keep encouraging your fans to vote. Here is the link to send them:

http://svy.mk/1FafvJP

Voting closes June 15, 2015, with the winners announced shortly thereafter. 

2) If you win a slot in the Top 20 or are a category winner...

You'll receive a certificate suitable for framing and displaying at your place of business, a year's worth of mention in our newsletter, 2015 award graphics to use in your own promotions, and a couple of other fun goodies. And natural P.R., of course.

3) Ads on the Top 20 page:

We have had a bunch of inquiries about advertising on the Top 20 page. Those ads are lovely and large, 575 pixels wide x 100 pixels high. (At the bottom of this email, I have put an example of one I love, in the proper dimensions, so you can see the kind of thing that is usually submitted.)

If you make the Top 20 or win in a category, that ad is only $50/month if you purchase it for a year, and it will appear as part of your listing on that page, to make your footprint on that page a lot bigger.

If you DON'T make the Top 20 this year, you can still purchase an ad on that page, for only $100/month... and it will appear in the highest slot available (if a winning organization does not purchase the ad for their slot, it will be offered to and organization that does not make the Top 20).

SPECIAL OFFER: If you reserve your Top 20 Ad before we announce the winners on June 19, it does not matter whether you make the Top 20 or not... your ad will cost you only $50/month. If you want to lock in this special rate, EMAIL ME BACK IMMEDIATELY to reserve your slot. 

**Note: It is in no way required to purchase any advertising with us in order to appear on KidsOutAndAbout.com, ever. Your organization listing, and posting to our calendars, is always free. But we are glad to provide you with opportunities to be extra visible to those in your market. There are lots of ways to do so, so just email me back if you're interested in hearing about these ways, and I will send you our rate sheet and demographics.

We plan to send you one of these reminder emails twice per week that the survey is live, through June 15, 2015. Please let me know if you don't want to be reminded again. 

Good luck! Happy voting!

Items Needed

Posted by Liz VanOrstrand on October 8, 2014 22:12 CDT

Education Department need any old smaller button down shirts they could use for children's paint smocks. They are currently good on egg cartons, toilet and paper towel rolls and could still use some cereal boxes.
