Bluebird and Small Cavity Nester Conservation

OATH OF THE ATHENIAN CITY-STATE

We will never bring disgrace to this our city
by any act of dishonesty or cowardice,
nor ever desert our suffering comrades in the ranks;
We will ever strive for the ideals and sacred things
of the city, both alone and with many;
We will revere and obey the city's laws
and do our best to incite to a like respect and reverence
those who are prone to annul or set them at naught;
We will unceasingly seek to quicken the sense of public duty;
That thus, in all these ways, we will transmit this city
not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful
than it was transmitted to us.
