Board of Directors

We are looking for people with a variety of skills - you don't need to be a great birder to make a difference for birds! Whether you have administrative or business expertise, conservation or science background, or previous board/volunteer experience there's a place here for you. Candidates should participate in Flagler Audubon activities for one year before applying. 

 

 

New board members are voted in each year at the May picnic. Board meetings are monthly, 6:00-7:30pm, typically in a board member's home.
