Birds of a feather will flock together for Audubon Virtual Advocacy Day on August 3, 2022. Speak up for California’s birds and our communities via ZOOM meetings with your legislators. It’s fun, easy, and makes a BIG difference!
We need your voice now. State legislators are making decisions that could save millions of birds and increase access to nature for all Californians.
To participate, you’re invited to join a group of Audubon members and meet with your legislators via ZOOM. Audubon staff facilitate the meetings and give you all the information you need to participate.
This year, Audubon is sponsoring essential environmental protections such as the Equitable Outdoor Access Act (AB30), California Conservation Ranching Incentive Program (SB977), and Light Pollution Control (AB2382). Learn more about these bills here.
We all have the right to nature. That’s why the Equitable Outdoor Access Bill (AB30) will expand access to nature for all Californians, especially low-income and people of color who are two-thirds more likely to live in nature-deprived areas than white people in California.
Our grassland birds are the most imperiled in California. The California Conservation Ranching Incentive Program (SB977) will protect habitat for the American Kestrel, Western Meadowlark, Grasshopper Sparrow, Acorn Woodpecker, and California Quail.
The Light Pollution Control bill (AB2382) ensures safe passage for birds that migrate by the stars. Every day in the U.S., one million birds die from collisions with buildings or structures as a result of outdoor night lighting. Reducing artificial night light can prevent 60% of bird collisions!
Your voice matters. These bills are game changers for California’s birds and communities. Join us and let’s make history together on August 3.
Register for Audubon Virtual Advocacy Day and reserve your spot now.
