I've been an Audubon member for over 20 years. In the past 11 years, I've seen the organization up close and personal - as a member, then donor, then volunteer, and state board member, then chapter founder. I started a chapter in NC because I found the staff dedicated, passionate, supportive, hard-working, rigorous in their research, frugal, and believing in their work and that of Audubon, and always approachable. Audubon has a proven track record over its 110 years and continues to adapt to changing environmental and conservation needs using birds as the medium of focus - for example, their identification of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) regionally and globally. My opinions of Audubon, its staff, and mission have not waned but strengthened over the years as I've become more involved. The current leadership will take Audubon into a new, exciting era, bringing its mission closer to us all - young and old. Their approach of Major Flyways and the latest technology will enable us to identify environmental concerns through birds in our areas and the ramification of our actions along the whole flyway - north to south, summering and wintering grounds. I continue to volunteer and donate to Audubon and plan to do so long into the future.
