We’re seeking new board members!

Vashon Audubon is now recruiting board members for 2019-2020. We seek islanders who are bird enthusiasts and have time and energy for our all-volunteer chapter. Vashon Audubon’s focus is birds and climate change, with four areas of emphasis: citizen science, education, conservation/advocacy, and public art.

We’re seeking a treasurer as well as board members to coordinate volunteers, do social media, help with education programs, assist with Wild Wonders 2020/Audubon bird murals, arrange off-island field trips, lead a new citizen science field survey project to help verify climate models, engage the next generation of birders, build chapter membership, archive files, and strengthen community partnerships.

Expertise and interest in native plants, ornithology, and climate science is welcome but not required. The treasurer will use Quick Books, develop annual budget, and create management reports.

Our chapter is fiscally sound and well managed. We have fun and a sense of humor.

The board positions are for one year except for the treasurer, who would serve a two-year term. The board meets every other month. We take most of the summer off to go birding and conduct Pigeon Guillemot field surveys, then reconvene for a salmon BBQ and planning session in August.

Vashon Audubon members will vote for a slate of board candidates at our annual meeting, June 13.

Interested? Want more information? Contact Julie Burman, board president, julieruthburman@gmail.com, 206 463-4127.
