As the new President of Los Angeles Audubon Society (LAAS), I am truly honored and humbled. It is an especially tall task to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Travis Longcore. I come to the love of birds through their habitats since I am a plant ecologist and native habitat restoration specialist, and I have been a member of the LAAS Board for five years. During my presidency, I hope to continue the LAAS Board’s conservation work for urban habitats by continuing to strengthen our connection to other Audubon chapters and organizations with similar visions within Los Angeles. I am pleased to announce that our education programs are expanding. We are beginning our third Summer Fellowship Program for college students, taking applicants from our high school environmental education program. Together with our long standing Ballona Wetland and newer Kenneth Hahn Park elementary and middle school outdoor education programs, LAAS is reaching a diverse constituency to continue our mission for the protection of birds. I hope you will consider joining LAAS at one of our events such as, the monthly programs at Debs Park; special field trips; and the guided bird walks at local parks; or as a volunteer shorebird monitor, or restoration volunteer – LAAS offers many opportunities to enjoy and protect birds.
