Skagit Audubon

Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

President's Message

by John Day

Dear Members and Friends of Skagit Audubon Society,

In my President’s Message for the September 2022 Flyer, I noted that the National Audubon Society (NAS) had begun considering whether to drop the Audubon name. Last Wednesday, March 15, NAS announced its Board of Directors’ decision to keep the name.  You can find more information on the decision in a press release at and in an open letter from NAS CEO Dr. Elizabeth Gray at  Now that NAS has announced its decision, our Board of Directors will discuss the implications of this for our chapter.

Our chapter Vice President, John Farnsworth, adds his personal commentary on John James Audubon the man and on the NAS decision in a separate column in this issue.
