Event description

Description

National Audubon Societry Cordially invites you to join us for a fun evening of Letter Writing at the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm. Come take ACTION For Birds & the Enviornment as we invite everyone to write letters of support for this issue to their state senators and representatives. We will have ample food and beverages for everyone. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP Via Eventbrite.

We will be urging your representatives to Uphold Ohio's Renewable Energy Standards. Currrently a bill has passed the House that would roll-back the Renewable Standards that we all worked really hard to pass. Audubon scientists have found that climate change threatens the survival of nearly half the bird species in the continental United State. Renewable energy and energy efficiency are crucial to stopping the worst effects of climate change, growing the economy in Ohio, creating jobs, and protecting public health and the environment.

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH), a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and Ben Cardin (D-MD), a senior member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, have introduced legislation (S. 1537) to reauthorize the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act, which would help sustain populations of migratory birds that face threats to their health and habitats. Their bill, reintroduced as the Migratory Birds of the Americas Conservation Act, promotes long-term conservation, education, research, monitoring, and habitat protection for more than 350 species of migratory birds including Ohio’s state bird, the Northern Cardinal. We will be writing up some thank you postcards to Rob Portman for co-sponsoring this bill.

We will provide all of the supplies and dinner! Bring Friends as this is a crucial time for us to stand up for Birds!!
