To our members, friends, supporters, volunteers & communities:
You may or may not be aware of the controversy over use of the Audubon name for the various entities including the National Audubon Society and local chapters such as ours. This has arisen from a growing discussion of the character and actions of John James Audubon, including his role as a slave owner and anti-abolitionist. Some chapters have dropped the name Audubon as a result.
Our board of directors has begun a process of considering this issue and plans to include our membership in this discussion. We will soon provide a way for you to express your thoughts to the board
on this matter.
If you are interested in exploring the issue, several articles, opinions, and information from
other Chapters can be found at the link below:
