April Program: Forsyth Audubon
Speaker: Wendy “Big Bird” Hawkins
You are invited to attend a bird talk given by Wendy Hawkins. She looks forward to enlightening everyone on the many activities, conservation projects and volunteer opportunities available through Forsyth Audubon, such as: Wood Thrush, Brown-headed Nuthatch, Bird-Friendly Communities, Bird-Friendly Yards, Lights Out, Education Team, and NC Ambassador, a climate change awareness and bird advocacy program. She will share her passion for birds, with time for questions.
Wendy is Education Team chair and Lights Out coordinator for Forsyth Audubon. She is originally from California, where she spent 10 years in the early childhood profession. In 2008, she and her family moved to the rural town of Eutawville, SC, to live a slower-paced life and be closer to her husband’s family. They moved to Winston-Salem in 2013 to allow their son to attend UNCSA.
Wendy enjoys studying birds and any information bird-related. Already a member of the National Audubon Society, she became an active member in the local Forsyth County chapter when she met Kim Brand, who works for NC Audubon and is an active leader in Forsyth Audubon. Wendy recently became a NC Audubon Ambassador, led her first official Audubon bird walk this winter, and regularly contacts government officials to request their support of bird-friendly legislation.
Forsyth Audubon is a local chapter of the National Audubon Society, a non-profit organization that focuses on wildlife conservation with an emphasis on birds. Audubon Society of Forsyth County was chartered in the early 1970s and has been making a positive impact on the local community. Partnering with Habitat for Humanity, they have been helping birds via education, their support of a multitude of conservation projects, advocating related legislation, and informing the public by leading bird walks and birding trips.
Due to the wide appeal of this topic, members are encouraged to bring guests
to this meeting. Spouses, family members and friends are welcome.
