Audubon California was established in 1996 as a field program of the National Audubon Society, overseeing the organization's properties and leading conservation efforts. But our work in California goes back to the earliest days of the national organization, even before its formal founding. Audubon's legacy of conservation and activism in the Golden State establishes it as a force for conservation along the Pacific Flyway.   Audubon California (AC) represents an ever-expanding flock: with nearly 163,000 members and supporters, 49 chapters across the state, 5 nature centers and sanctuaries, and other properties we manage around the state. Audubon California’s varied conservation work – and our passionate supporters – give the birds we love a fighting chance, while creating a better future for us all.   Audubon’s work is just as interconnected as the ecosystems we work to save. Successful bird conservation requires us to weave together a broad spectrum of people, cross-cutting policies, and diverse places across the state to deliver lasting impacts.   Audubon’s work always starts with people – from our dedicated membership to our staff scientists and educators, to our expansive partnership network that includes farmers, legislators, environmental justice advocates, and conservation organizations. Audubon is consistently the bridge between diverse and often conflicting stakeholders, bringing people together to craft durable practical solutions in the places birds need most.   In California, Audubon members helped save the California Condor and remove the Aleutian Canada Goose from the Endangered Species List. Audubon California took the lead in designing and shepherding securing habitat at Owens Lake through a combination of policymaking and grassroots conservation, resulting in a sustainable habitat that has served as a model for other conservation projects.   With so many conservation challenges, Audubon must prioritize where to invest time, funding, and political capital. In California, we work on strategic projects in every major landscape. For example, along the coast, Audubon advances protections and restoration in 4 major estuaries, providing habitat, access to nature, and improved coastal resilience for millions of Californians. In the Central Valley, Audubon is focused on protecting surface and ground water for the last 5 percent of California’s remaining wetlands, the critical backbone of the Pacific Flyway. Audubon’s urban centers, the Audubon Center at Debs Park and the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary, are inclusive spaces that welcome community members to learn about and participate in the transformational conservation efforts Audubon California leads, while enjoying the beautiful wildlife these efforts support. Centers host summer camps, youth conservation leadership programs, numerous volunteer opportunities, and serve as community hubs for environmental justice and advocate work, expanding the Audubon network and training new generations of conservation advocates.   Audubon’s policy staff works hand in hand with staff scientists and educators, chapters, our members and close allies, and other interested stakeholders such as farmers and water districts, to craft and deliver science-based policy solutions that will endure. In the past ten years, Audubon was central to passing legislation to ban toxic lead ammunition in California to save the California Condor, securing permanent protections for migratory birds, and establishing ambitious conservation goals such as “30 by 30” and other nature-based solutions to climate change. Audubon will continue to leverage its 163,000 members and supporters, 49 chapters, and extensive network of partners to meet directly with legislators and agency leaders to secure legislative, budget, and other policy wins at the regional, state, and federal levels.   Audubon California is well-positioned to contribute solutions to the immense conservation challenges ahead.

About Audubon South Carolina:   Audubon South Carolina (ASC) represents an ever-expanding flock, with nearly 28,000 members and supporters in every State County, two nature conservation centers/sanctuaries, and more than 30,000 acres of land that we own and manage using bird-and climate-friendly management practices. In addition, Audubon South Carolina also works with eight chapters and bird club partners across the state. Audubon South Carolina’s varied conservation work – and our passionate supporters – give the birds we love a fighting chance while creating a better future for us all.   People, Places & Policy:   Just as ecosystems are interconnected, so, too, is our work. Our efforts weave together South Carolina’s people, places, and policy to make a lasting impact.   As champions for conservation, our nearly 28,000 members and eight state chapters and bird clubs represent an extensive grassroots network that advocates for federal, state, and local policies that protect birds and the places they need.   Audubon South Carolina’s approach to advocacy connects our members, partners, and elected officials around the issues affecting birds and people in South Carolina. Whether supporting conservation partners and frontline communities with advocacy grants, hosting in-district bird walks with legislators or providing advocacy training to chapters, ASC always works to create a unified voice for birds.   ASC is focused on accelerating a clean energy future for our state, increasing coastal resilience through natural infrastructure, and protecting South Carolina’s most valuable habitats. We have worked extensively to increase the competitiveness of solar energy in the state, secure funding for resilience and natural infrastructure projects such as the restoration of Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary Island in Mt. Pleasant, and make resilience an important component of state planning and federal projects.     Healthy Forests: We partner with landowners on land management practices that are both bird-friendly and profitable, with a specific focus on the restoration of critical Longleaf Pine and bottomland hardwood habitats. We also own and manage nearly 30,000 acres of land.   Coastal Resilience: In 2022 we plan to release the Coastal Carolinas Initiative in collaboration with our North Carolina state office, which will serve as a strategic plan for our coastal work throughout the state, providing a meaningful mapping tool to help inform where we work and engage partners on strategic restoration and protection projects. The development stage of the initiative has already paved the way for an innovative coastal conservation strategy for the greater Cape Romain region. Over the next three years, we will spearhead several projects that will have incredible cultural and natural resource benefits for communities at increased risk from sea-level rise.   Audubon Centers & Sanctuaries:   Audubon’s centers are inclusive spaces that welcome our state’s diverse communities to learn about – and participate in – the transformational conservation efforts Audubon South Carolina leads while enjoying the beautiful wildlife these efforts support. Comprising 22,000 acres of vital habitat, Audubon’s Beidler Forest and Silver Bluff centers and sanctuaries serve as essential habitat life-rafts for hundreds of bird species and other wildlife and offer a place of respite and conservation education for thousands of visitors each year.    Audubon Centers & Sanctuary at Francis Beidler Forest: This 18,000-acres bird and wildlife sanctuary features a 1.75-mile boardwalk through the world’s largest virgin cypress-tupelo swamp as well as a grassland and woodland trail. As a designated site of significance within the National Park Service’s Underground Railroad - Network to Freedom program, Beidler is as much a historical treasure as it is a natural wonder.   Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary: This 3,400-acre sanctuary overlooking the Savannah River features a pristine forest ecosystem, walking trails, 50 acres of lakes and ponds, 100 acres of grassland, archaeological sites, and all manner of birds and wildlife.   How to Apply:    This search is being conducted by Victory Search Group's Non-Profit Practice.   Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter to nonprofit@victorysearchgroup.com noting "Audubon" in the subject line.
