Message from our Executive Director

Bob Power of Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society
Bob Power
Executive Director

Over the past eighty years, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society has worked with a talented and dedicated staff, generous and committed volunteers, and a visionary Board of Directors, to implement our mission: to preserve, to enjoy, to restore and to foster public awareness of native birds and their ecosystems. I never cease to be amazed at how vital that mission continues to be today. When we experience native birds in their and our ecosystems, wondrous transformations occur. Children giggle, teenagers say "wow" and "cool", and grown adults wonder why they don't do this more often.

Our staff and volunteers look forward to helping you bridge the disconnect between our hurry-up existence and the slower, sublime wonders of the natural world. If you're new to the site, please consider joining and supporting our organization. If you're already a member, we want this organization to be vital for you. From participation in field trips, volunteering for bird counts, taking an educational class, or introducing our programs to the next generation, there are countless opportunities for maintaining that vital connection to native birds. We'll look for and be responsive to your ideas as we continually refine our work in habitat preservation and protection, public education and outings, and the advocacy so vital to all of our efforts.

As we strive to ensure that SCVAS is representative of and relevant to our diverse community, I'd love to hear from you about why you joined Santa Clara Valley Audubon, what our strengths are, from your eyes, and how we could be even more relevant in the coming years.

Yours in birding wonder,
Bob Power
