Special Centennial issue of The Gull

We also have other Centennial-related events planned for 2017, including monthly guest speakers on species and topics related to our history and field trips to parks that we have helped protect or restore. Click here to download the special Centennial issue of our Gull newsletter, which tells the fascinating story of our first 100 years.

Our overall goal for the year is to strengthen Golden Gate Audubon so that we can be an even more effective advocate for Bay Area birds and wildlife in the coming century. We are proud of our achievements — from stopping oil dumping off the Farallon Islands in the 1920s to protecting Alameda’s endangered Least Tern nesting colony in the 2000s — and we hope to share them with with our existing members as well as thousands of people who are new to Golden Gate Audubon.
