Seattle Audubon continues to monitor public health guidelines as they affect our activities. We will continue to evaluate as new information becomes available. (Resources are listed at the end of this document.)

Contact information for the relevant staff is listed for each activity, if you have further questions or concerns. Seattle Audubon is also following recommendations for employers, and staff are primarily working from home (Staff Directory). Through this challenging time in our community, we encourage everyone to act with kindness and compassion, and to support those in the community who most need our collective actions to help reduce the spread of this disease.
