Dear friend,

Without a doubt, 2018 was an eventful Year of the Bird. There were many challenges, but your support rose to meet them. From a record-breaking Colorado Gives Day, to phenomenal river and sagebrush advocacy engagement, to amazing growth within Conservation Ranching, and to widespread Community Naturalist participation, you helped make 2018 the Year of the Bird. Thank you. We’re so excited to have you with us in 2019!

Sincerely, 
Alison Holloran
Executive Director

What’s going on with Sage-Grouse?
In response to President Trump’s 2017 secretarial order to singularly advance energy development on public lands, Audubon continues to fight for the 2015 science-based sage-grouse management plans.

Last month the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) moved towards implementing harmful changes to their sage-grouse management plans. Now, Governor Polis and Governor Gordon have a narrow opportunity to send their comments to the BLM. Please add your voice to a letter that we’ll deliver to your new governors encouraging them to stand strong for the sagebrush ecosystem and Western values.

More than 19,000 people have completed Audubon’s Action Alert telling the U.S. Forest Service not to weaken their sage-grouse plans. Thank you!
