Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who help our birding community grow! “If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life.” --Author Unknown
We are excited to share we earned the 100% Giving Board Award 2023 from the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada. Our Board is making a difference in our community by supporting the programs that support our local bird communities. Through youth education, bird walks, meeting programs, research presentations, community science, and conservation, Lahontan Audubon Society is your local nonprofit that builds our community and works to preserve the open spaces for birds and us! Lahontan Audubon Society is one of 116 local nonprofit organizations recognized for exemplary Board giving! Since 2008, the Community Foundation’s 100% Giving Board Award recognizes Northern Nevada nonprofits for the financial support their board members contribute to their organization’s work. The Community Foundation celebrates nonprofit board members working together for our community and personally demonstrating their belief in the work being done.
Today, our Field Trip Chair, Lauren Whitenack and our youngest field trip leader, Steven Cavros, led a bird walk through May Arboretum and Rancho San Rafael Park. Click here for the eBird Report :) Steven is part of the American Birding Association's Young Birder Program and is one of the up and coming young leaders! Look for his field trips. He will be leading another walk at Virginia Lake next week!
