November Monthly Audubon Society Meeting

 

Join the Audubon Society and Toyota Togethergreen fellow Jacqueline Rose for an important and inspiring talk on work being done locally to inspire conservation of our coastal watershed and the biodiversity that depend on it. 

Wearing multiple hats as Founder, Programs Director, and Environmental Educator for The SeaVibe Foundation—a non-profit organization dedicated to providing water-centric environmental education through both arts and science—little moss gathers on Jacqueline Rose. She envisions nothing less than “revolutionary improvements to education…empowering youth with relevant academic skills, values, and resources to protect water and other natural resources.” Her foundation has pursued that ambitious goal with projects such as teaching marine conservation and art to youth rehabilitating from drugs and gangs at Santa Cruz Community Group Homes in Watsonville, CA and the development of the SeaVibe Internship, a partnership with Olympic High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, in which students conducted 58 water quality tests at 15 sites in Catawba River, and shared results directly with the Mayor and local media.

The SeaVibe Foundation is dedicated to keeping our oceans healthy by making smart choices on land.  It supports the conservation of Earth’s natural resources by bridging gaps between environmental and social needs in a mutually beneficial, peaceful, sustainable way. They work closely with individuals, students, families, communities, and partner organizations to develop opportunities linked to a deeper understanding of and appreciation for our relationship with nature and our interactions with watersheds and the ocean.

 

All monthly Audubon meetings are held at the Pacific Grove Museum on the second Tuesday of the month. All meetings are free and members and non-members are welcome! Doors open at 7:00 PM with soft drinks and cookies provided by MAS hospitality. Monterey Audubon has been devoted to the understanding, conservation and enjoyment of Central California's birdlife since 1943. We strive to connect communities and individuals to the region's avifauna through educational programs and outdoor recreation. As a chapter of America's oldest conservation group we are also committed to advocacy on behalf of native avifauna and ecosystems as well as the implementation of stewardship practices which conserve and restore the Monterey region's precious biological diversity and wildlife.
