Wintu Audubon Strategic Plan for 2014 – 2015
The purpose of this plan is to establish goals and objectives that may be achieved in the coming years. Nevertheless, it is a plan and subject to change and revision as circumstances dictate. This plan should be used as a road map for activities as the chapter functions and participates within the community.
- Provide ten membership meetings with programs on conservation, birding, science, and natural history subjects.
- Provide one full day and two half-day field trips per month, excluding July and August.
- Continue and expand youth training and support through school and community outreach presentations, including our 2nd Saturday bird walks, and provide binoculars and field guides to children for these events. As our budget allows and requests are made, continue to support youth participation in birding festivals.
- Provide a Chapter Newsletter on a bi-monthly basis, excluding July and August.
- Review, comment, and provide guidance on EIRs, Forest/BLM management plans, and other activities which affect bird habitat or a safe environment in our area.
