    Looking for reliable volunteers for a new hummingbird banding site at Page Springs Fish Hatchery! This is a great opportunity to learn more about hummingbirds. Hilary Morejon from The International Hummingbird Society has become a permitted bander and is working with the Hummingbird Conservation Network on expanding hummingbird research in the Verde Valley. In order for this to happen, we need volunteers to help at the site.

    Having been a member of the National Audubon Society for longer than she can remember and as a current member of two Audubon chapters (NAAS and Pasadena), Dr. Nancy Steele is excited to join the board of NAAS. She brings her skills from over three decades of running nonprofits and serving on nonprofit boards. She also brings her curiosity and research skills and is excited about the opportunities at NAAS to promote bird research and conservation.

    Nancy is recently retired from her job as Executive Director of Friends of the Verde River, which she served from 2018 through 2023. She served as ED of Council for Watershed Health in Los Angeles from 2005 – 2015, and as interim ED for two organizations from 2016 - 2018. She founded the Arroyos &amp; Foothills Conservancy in 2000 and served as its President/CEO from 2000 – 2011, and as its Director of Conservation in 2017.

    NAAS is so pleased that Nancy chose our conservation organization to work with in her retirement. As we head into the age of Motus research, her knowledge and experience will be extremely valuable.

    Arizona is at a crossroads. Our water is at risk if we don't take action.

    In 80% of the state, groundwater pumping is unlimited. This makes Arizona communities easy targets for outside interests to set up shop, take advantage of our lax groundwater laws, and extract limited groundwater resources for free.

    Urge your legislators and Governor Hobbs to protect our precious water resources for generations to come.

    We are gathering signatures and will send the letter to Governor Katie Hobbs and Arizona legislators at the beginning of the legislative session in January 2024.

    Answer this Action Alert to stop the Ambler Road in the Brooks Range where thousands of acres of wetlands and migration pathways will be affected.

    The proposed Ambler industrial mining road would be an irreversible blow to the Brooks Range and would open the floodgate to widespread and destructive mining operations across Northwest Alaska. This proposed 211-mile, private, industrial access corridor would run through the Arctic's critical caribou and bird habitat, salmon and sheefish spawning areas, and the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Fifteen species of boreal birds found along the proposed Amber Road corridor, including the Blackpoll Warbler and Olive-sided Flycatcher, already face significant decline across their ranges and would be directly impacted by the road.

    Avian Point-Count Technicians in Four Corners National Parks

    Spend your summer doing field work in the beautiful National Parks of the Southern Colorado Plateau! We are looking for field technicians to conduct breeding bird point-count surveys as part of a long-term monitoring plan for the National Parks.

    PROJECT DATES: Early April – early July 2024

    TRAINING: The field season will begin with a three-week intensive training period focusing on field safety and implementation of unlimited-radius point counts with distance sampling. Field crews should aim to have a good knowledge of the songs and calls of southwestern birds before the training period begins and will participate in online review sessions of bird songs prior to the in-person training period.

    Diane Hope recently contacted our chapter to write a KNAU Earth Note on the establishment of two Motus stations by NAAS. 

    Listen to learn more: KNAU Earth Note on NAAS Motus stations

    NAAS can further conservation knowledge to help make stopover sites for migrating birds safer.

    This is a display to celebrate the beauty of birds.  We are looking for engaging, non-violent images from around the world and the Verde Valley.  We want to amaze people with the variety of birds they can see here and on their travels, and inspire them to take some time to learn more about birds. If we have multiple images of one species and limited space, we may select only one or two of that species for exhibit. 

    Photos will be displayed in the library's indoor entrance area on white corkboards.  Photos need to be matted before you deliver them to us.  If you need help with matting, please send an email to  If there is enough interest, we may have a pre-display matting party!  

    You can list your photos as for sale, with a price and contact info.  

    The Library is not responsible for the photos.

    1)  Please plan to submit no more than 4 images.
    2)  Max size is 11x14, including mat
    3)  Each photo must have a label on the back stating your name, bird species, the image title, and a price if it is for sale. 
    4)  On or before September 26, please email Alice Madar ( with your name, email, phone number, and a list of your (up to) 4 images.  For each image, include the following:

    • Image title
    • Bird species
    • Where photographed
    • A sentence or two about the bird or your experience taking the photo
    • Price and information on how you can be reached, if the image is for sale

     We need this information in advance so we can create an image tag for each photo.  

    Please contact Alice to let her know if you plan to participate either as a photographer or as a volunteer to help prepare the exhibit.  Then invite all your friends to come see the photos between October 3 and October 14!

    Advocacy Watch

    Supreme Court Decision Threatens Waterways that Birds (and People) NeedThe Court’s ruling in Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency removes crucial protections for wetlands, limiting the Clean Water Act. “This Supreme Court ruling weakens our federal standards for clean water, threatening our ability to protect ecosystems and landscapes needed for birds and communities across the country,” said Julie Hill-Gabriel, Audubon’s Vice President for Water Conservation. “Federal experts will no longer be able to require certain development permits in America’s decimated wetlands. This decision undermines Clean Water Act protections for many types of waterways that birds and people need, all while birds are telling us that more action is needed to protect their future.” Western Water News 

    "The decision focused specifically on wetlands, but it may hold implications for numerous other waterways throughout the nation. Five out of the nine judges ruled that wetlands can only be regulated under the Clean Water Act if they have a “continuous surface connection” to larger bodies of water. The seasonal streams are so beneficial because they protect our surface and groundwater quality, the buffer downstream private property by conveying floodwaters and sediment and dirt, they replenish our groundwater," said Haley Paul, policy director at the Southwest branch of the Audubon Society."  Wetlands water
