Do Birds of a Feather . . .

By Louise Polli

If we are talk­ing about the Lan­dis Arbore­tum and the Audubon Soci­ety of the Cap­i­tal Region, yes, birds of a feath­er real­ly do flock together. 

The Arbore­tum con­tin­ues to fos­ter alliances with local orga­ni­za­tions that have sim­i­lar inter­ests and mis­sions. John Loz, pro­grams chair and past pres­i­dent of the Audubon Soci­ety of the Cap­i­tal Region, recent­ly joined Lan­dis Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Fred Breglia and Board Pres­i­dent Jim Paley on an intro­duc­to­ry golf cart tour of Lan­dis – the first step in a promis­ing new rela­tion­ship between the two organizations.

The com­ing togeth­er of the Audubon Soci­ety and the Lan­dis Arbore­tum is a good fit for both groups. These pho­tos high­light some of the Audubon Society’s recent activ­i­ties, illus­trat­ing its role in the con­ser­va­tion and stew­ard­ship of our nat­ur­al resources, goals shared by the Arboretum.

As our part­ner­ship devel­ops, and hope­ful­ly, flour­ish­es, we will be sure to give you updat­ed infor­ma­tion in future issues of the Newslet­ter. And not just a tweet.”
