Almost 70 Audubon chapter members and staff spent the day at the Capitol this week meeting with legislators and working hard to protect birds and the environment in California. Check out the video to see what we were up to and hear from Auduboners from across the state.
Staff from Audubon California today led a birding walk with Congressman Jared Huffman and Marin County Supervidor Damon Donnolly at China Camp State Park. Audubon joined with the National Estuarine Research Reserve to talk about how wetlands provide climate resiliency, biodiversity, and recreational opportunities.
Strong op-ed in the New York Times today arguing that the Trump Administration's moves to gut the Migratory Bird Treaty Act constitute a blanket pass for industries to kill migratory birds. These actions by the federal government are exactly what prompted Audubon California to sponsor Assembly Bill 2627, which is moving its way through the Legislature now.
Audubon California urges everyone to vote YES on Proposition 68 on June 5th. Not only will this measure benefit birds in multiple ways, it will also build and fix parks where most needed, provide clean water, ensure natural resources protection, and help California address the impacts of climate change. Let us know that you're a YES on Prop 68.
