History of the National Audubon Society
Redwood Region Audubon Society
The Redwood Region Audubon Society (RRAS) was founded in 1969. It encompasses Humboldt, Del Norte and western Trinity Counties in northwest California.
RRAS is a volunteer, nonprofit organization with about 500 members that rely on the energy and commitment of those members to be a strong and effective local conservation organization.
RRAS is governed by a Board of Directors of between 9 and 13 members, who serve 2-year terms. Elections are held each January. It also has active committees that handle conservation, education, field trips, finance, membership, nominating, programs, publicity, and publications. View the Chapter Bylaws.
RRAS holds a seat on the Board of Directors of the Northcoast Environmental Center (NEC), founded in 1971. As a host of citizen activist groups, the NEC has been at the forefront of every Klamath-Siskiyou regional environmental struggle for decades - from ancient redwoods, wild rivers, and recycling to toxics, energy, and endangered species.
The purposes and objectives of this corporation shall be to engage in such educational, scientific, investigative, literary, historical, philanthropic, and charitable pursuits as may be part of the stated purposes of the National Audubon Society, of which this corporation shall function as a Chapter.
