Attendees young, old, and in between were treated to bird walks in the park, bird- and nature-related games and activities, and information about the migratory birds in our area.
Rebecca has been involved with our organization as the Bird Walk coordinator since fall of 2017. She has attended board meetings, as well as helped with bird walks and outreach events since first becoming involved. She is excited about birding and cares deeply about sharing the excitement and wonderment of birding. Thanks Rebecca, for your help!! —Maeve
I am so excited to be the newest board member of the Lane County Audubon Society! I grew up knowing what my backyard birds were, and particularly loved American Goldfinches and Red-winged Blackbirds.
We are happy to announce that Dennis Arendt has taken on the role of LCAS Program Coordinator! Thank you to Dennis for your willingness to bring your talents to Lane Audubon Programs! Welcome Dennis—we look forward to working with you!
