We want to approach our core commitments to education, conservation, and advocacy in ways that respond to the needs of the people of Oregon and the world around us.”
Scheduled to be finalized fall 2021, the recruitment aims to be an inclusive, holistic process that incorporates the board of directors’ desired qualifications while addressing the needs and considerations of the Portland Audubon staff.
