Goals, Hopes, Aspirations, and Plans of the North Central Washington Audubon Society
From Former Chapter President Mark Oswood
We promote resource decisions based on the best available data. Many times, differences dissolve and solutions coagulate when people have good information.
We try to be honest brokers in environmental conflicts. Our aim is to serve the same function as mucous in the human body; lubricate and trap foreign particles.
Sustainable economies are the only road into the future. Ecology and economy derive from the same root word.
We do birds – watch them, count them, protect them. Birds are one of the grandest expressions of life.
We believe in citizen science and life-long learning. We can all be scholars.
We are “outside consultants” – leading field trips, holding outdoor classes, and doing “dirt work.” A meadow of spring flowers, ravens doing acrobatics, and a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis are best experienced viscerally, not virtually.
