The Eastside Audubon website has an updated and impressive new look. The Youth Education Committee (YEC) is especially grateful because we created a new section entitled Resources for Teachers and Parents. Learn about the new workshops and lesson plans now available for download.
The January 5th event was a great start to the year for habitat restoration at Marymoor. Even though there were no plants to put in the ground, 27 volunteers came out for invasive plant species removal for a total of 83.5 service hours. Also, a special guest from King County came to visit and there was even a little bird drama.
The year is off to a good start and I hope the same is true for you. On January 13, the EAS board participated in a day-long retreat to talk about roles, goals and priorities. It was a good opportunity to discuss the areas in the chapter that need attention, both from the board’s point of view and the executive director’s.
A lot of great work is going on at the Marymoor Park Audubon Bird Loop, so starting this year we’re going to share a little update each month.
A major goal of Eastside Audubon is the creation of bird-friendly communities in the Northwest and beyond. One way to expand our message is to share the information with other nonprofits, civic groups, clubs, and classrooms interested in learning more about the role they can play in creating a bird-friendly environment.
