| Dear Friend,|
Along its path to shaping a healthier future for birds and people, Audubon is constantly striving to maximize conservation impact across communities and the natural landscapes on which birds and people depend. To that end, we are making some changes to how we manage our work in Pennsylvania and Maryland, combining our separate offices into a new regional office - Audubon Mid-Atlantic.
From the Allegheny Mountains all the way to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Audubon will deepen and broaden its impact, through its continued focus on Healthy Forests, the Chesapeake and Delaware Watersheds, and Bird-friendly Communities, with the network of four Audubon centers serving as hubs of conservation opportunities and community engagement across the region. A search is now underway for a leader of this new Mid-Atlantic office. Greg Goldman, who had been serving as Executive Director for Audubon Pennsylvania, will be shifting into a new role for the Mid-Atlantic region, applying his many talents as a leader in fundraising. Stay tuned for more to come.
As we move towards this transition in structure, our focus on birds and our core strategies remains constant. This month, we feature our Bird-Friendly Communities programs, bringing neighbors to nature, classrooms to communities, and local leaders to the landscapes that define our sense of place. Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities encompasses three key initiatives: Plants for Birds, Bird-Friendly Buildings, and Avian Architecture. Learn about the innovative programs taking place and how you can get involved below.
We look forward to bringing you more updates and opportunities, and thank you for your continued support and involvement.
