One hundred percent (100%) of the net proceeds from the sales of Monty and Rose Nest at Montrose will be donated by Plovermother and Monty and Rose, LLC, to support research and conservation efforts of Piping Plovers and shorebirds. To learn more about the conservation research project to be funded, visit our Book-funded Conservation page.
As such, all sales efforts are geared towards minimizing expenses and fees, such as fees collected by credit card companies and third-party payment processors. Likewise, the book will not be available initially via popular ordering sites, as they can request up to 60% of the sales of the book as their fees.
Please note that Monty and Rose, LLC, is not a not-for-profit organization, and the purchase of the book is not tax-deductible.
Payments accepted will be check, Quickpay by Zelle (via your bank account, only email address or phone number is needed), or Venmo. Credit cards and PayPal are not accepted.

– your name
