2024 Maryland I Bird I Vote Conservation Summit

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Audubon Mid-Atlantic’s 2024 Maryland I Bird I Vote Conservation Summit to talk about bird conservation and advocacy. The event was sold out as we marked nine years of holding this annual Audubon tradition. We are grateful to our speakers and guests who filled the summit with such enthusiastic conversation, and to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for providing a beautiful backdrop for the day.

We would like to extend a special thank you to  U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary Josh Kurtz, and we thank them for sharing their insights and look forward to partnering with them. We also look forward to working with you to advocate for birds and the places they need to survive, this year and beyond! Be on the lookout for opportunities to provide testimony or contact your legislators to support Audubon's legislative priorities this year in Annapolis.

Audubon Mid-Atlantic will soon have a legislative tracker on our website, but for now you can use this link to track the status of bills we’re watching:
