November Program – California Conservation
November 16, 2017, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Natasha Khanna will discuss California Conservation will be the topic discussed at our November meeting.
Natasha Khanna is Audubon California’s new field organizer for Southern California. While she serves as the liaison to Southern California chapters, Natasha helps to build local advocacy on a variety of issues, with climate at the top of the list.
In the past, Natasha has volunteered in the Los Nogales nursery and interned with the Palos Verdes/South Bay Audubon Society’s YES program. She comes Audubon from Special Service for Groups Alliance, where she served as case manager, connecting clients to mental health services. She was also a program coordinator and outreach consultant for the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council in Los Angeles. In her free time, Natasha likes to play soccer and practice yoga and mindfulness.
Because of the importance of California to birds, Audubon has had a strong presence here for more than 100 years – represented by the National Audubon Society, local chapters, and many thousands of members and supporters. Audubon California, acting as a field program of the National Audubon Society since 1996, has a long list of accomplishments on behalf of birds and nature. Recent examples include legislation to remove toxic lead from ammunition, an agreement to safeguard habitat for birds at Owens Lake, establishment of protected areas for marine birds along the coast, and an introduction to nature for thousands of children at our centers and sanctuaries.
