9th Annual I Bird I Vote Conservation Summit

Audubon Mid-Atlantic held its 2024 I Bird I Vote Conservation Summit on Saturday, February 10th in Annapolis, Maryland.  More than 85 people attended the summit, participating in lively conversation and hearing from federal, state and nonprofit leaders on the status of Maryland conservation policy and projects, with a particular emphasis on coastal marsh conservation and renewable energy. 
U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Secretary Josh Kurtz joined the summit as guest speakers - sharing insights on Audubon's priority legislation and how attendees can work with them to protect birds and their habitats. Audubon leaders also had the opportunity to thank Senator Cardin, who is retiring this year, for his outstanding leadership in the Senate on environmental issues. Senator Cardin has a true champion of birds and, during his remarks, he let the audience know how much birds mean to him.
The audience learned more about Audubon's key conservation priority in Maryland—Marshes for Tomorrowand the plan to save these marshes for birds and people.
