Seattle Audubon is supported by a dedicated Board of Directors. They help to accomplish our mission to advocate and organize for cities where people and birds thrive, through a set of shared values that underline our vision of a healthy environment in balance, where people enjoy, respect and care for our urban community.
Our Board of Directors play a vital role in ensuring Seattle Audubon has the strategic direction and necessary resources to create a sustainable community. In addition to their role as at large board members, several serve on committees. We are grateful for their expertise and focus ranging from policy/legal, marketing, management, planning, communications, and community engagement to ensuring financial stability of the organization.
