Sept. 18-Oct. 6: UND’s Nonprofit Leadership Student Association flocks Grand Forks

The UND Nonprofit Leadership Student Association (NLSA) will be “flocking” Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.

What is flocking? NLSA is putting up flamingos in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks residents’ yard to raise money for a local nonprofit.

This event will only run for three weeks from Sept. 18 – Oct. 6.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to flock your sister, boss, or in-laws.

It is $20 to send a flock of flamingos to a house in Grand Forks or East Grand Forks.

All orders should be sent via email at or find an order form on our Facebook page at   Please include your name and a way to reach you. The birds will not take flight until payment has been received.

After you have been flocked the birds will be moved from your yard 24 hours later. You can retaliate or pass it on to another friend.

NLSA, which is affiliated with the UND College of Business and Public Administration, provides social and cultural opportunities for its members, as well as preparing students for careers in nonprofit leadership.
