A great event for Audubon members

The Kitsap Audubon Society and its nearly 1,000 members in Kitsap County extend heartfelt thanks to Mayor Becky Erickson, her staff and the City of Poulsbo for being such welcoming hosts for our statewide meeting of Washington Audubon and its 26 chapters. It was a wonderful opportunity to show off our beautiful city and magnificent Poulsbo City Hall to our 95 Audubon visitors.

Each year, the annual meeting is hosted by a different chapter. This year it was hosted by Kitsap Audubon. Our keynote speaker was David Yarnold, president and CEO of National Audubon.

We also hosted a ribbon-cutting for the new Puget Sound Loop of the Great Washington Birding Trail.  This is the final four-color map in a series of seven Audubon regional guides to the best birding locations in Washington State. Kitsap Audubon had a big hand in the research and funding for the Puget Loop map. It features seven prime locations in Kitsap County.

Organizers and attendees spent lots of money in Poulsbo at local hotels and restaurants. The meeting was a great success for Kitsap Audubon, the City of Poulsbo and local businesses.

We very much appreciate the great support we received from Mayor Erickson, the City of Poulsbo and local businesses.

Jim Ullrich
President
Kitsap Audubon Society
