Board of Directors  

Seattle Audubon is supported by a dedicated Board of Directors. They help to accomplish the mission through a set of shared values that underline our mission to cultivate and lead a community that values and protects birds and the natural environment, 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.
