This winter, don't forget to include plants for pollinators in your spring gardening plans! | An editorial by Audubon Senior Director of Policy Meg Kerr

Visitors who view the conservation staff as the face of Audubon should not be surprised to find them mowing grass, repairing kiosks, building boardwalks or doing innumerable other tasks that some may not consider conservation work. But while they are happy to answer questions, identify plants and do whatever else may be necessary to help visitors enjoy their experience on the property, there is always more to do.

Five years ago, Audubon set a goal to attain accreditation with the national Land Trust Alliance (LTA) to prove to ourselves, and our supporters, that we are indeed (and not just in theory) careful and proper stewards of the land. This accreditation is the national gold standard for non-governmental organizations that conserve land.

Each fall thousands of raptors fly south through New England on their way to wintering grounds. The peak time to observe the hawks is typically mid-September through mid-October. Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut all have great places to watch this wonderful migration.

The Rhode Island Birding Atlas is a five-year effort which will help to answer some big questions upon its completion: How have bird species and distribution changed since the previous study was completed over 30 years ago? How have bird habitats been altered?

Come immerse yourself in the tropics and experience the amazing diversity of bird life in Panama. Upcoming trips are December 6 – 11, 2018 or February 7 – 12, 2019 and are led by Professional Ornithologist and Audubon Board Member, Charles Clarkson, PhD. Informational sessions are available!

Audubon’s policy department collaborates with many partners across the state to track environmental issues and develop successful advocacy strategies. Rhode Island’s environmental community works exceptionally well together, recognizing the power of many voices working together as one.
