Taking Action

Seattle Audubon advocates and organizes for cities where people and birds thrive. We frequently act on issues relating to urban forestry, bird-safe building design, pesticide reduction, and more. Read about our current and past conservation advocacy work here.

Join the Seattle Conservation Activist Network

The Seattle Conservation Activist Network (SCAN) email list is focused on local conservation news and action alerts. When you join and participate, you help Seattle Audubon become a stronger and more effective conservation organization. As a SCAN-er, we’ll notify you when opportunites arise to advocate for Seattle-area cities where people and birds thrive.
