Time to order your new Houston Audubon conservation license plate!

Houston Audubon is pleased to announce the launch of its new conservation license plate through Texas Department of Motor Vehicle (TxDMV) and sponsored by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD).

The Eastern Meadowlark, an iconic prairie species commonly found throughout Texas, was chosen by a committee of bird enthusiasts because this species needs conservation action and the habitat is one that Houston Audubon is deeply committed to restoring. We believe this bird and tagline, “Protect Birds and Habitat” will have broad appeal to many birding, nature, and conservation enthusiasts across the great state of Texas.

The Eastern Meadowlark is shown standing tall and belting out his melodious song and was inspired by Alan Murphy’s photograph from a sighting in Galveston, Texas.

We hope you will consider ordering this non-profit conservation license plate for your car. For each $30 plate fee collected, $22 comes directly to Houston Audubon. Funds raised from the sale of these plates will go to Houston Audubon’s bird conservation efforts and serve as a wonderful outreach and education tool to raise awareness about the importance of protecting birds and their habitat. 

The license plate will be available beginning June 21.

A special thank you to our lead sponsors, Heather and Bob Westendarp, and to our supporting sponsors Joni Shereda and Brian McKenna, and Don Quaintance. We gratefully appreciate Don Quaintance for his graphic design work and Alan Murphy for his inspirational bird photography.
