Nongame Wildlife Program Window Clings! 

This 4"x4" logo window cling replaces the poster for this year.  These are less expensive, less cumbersome and more visible!  Order as many as you need to give to your clients who donate to the nongame fund.  If people are interested in a window cling, even if they didn't donate, you may still provide them.  Our goal is to familiarize our public with our logo and the checkbox.
