Description: Citizens, no matter if part of an Audubon chapter or just concerned about the environment, need to be aware of and take an active role in statewide environmental issues. State issues are often tied to national issues and advocacy is part of Audubon’s mission. Marne Urso, Policy Director with National Audubon’s Great Lakes Region, will walk us through how any of us can receive notice of issues AND how to become involved. Educating oneself on issues, contacting local representatives, or writing letters to the editor are just a few and easy ways to volunteer and advocate for the environment.
Program attendees will also be treated to the Fall 2019 #TinySilentAuction, a fine art auction by Cleveland and Ohio artists for donation to support Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society conservation awareness and education projects.
