IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION – “Our Board of Directors previously voted to drop the name Audubon from our chapter name due to a desire to distance ourselves from the man John James Audubon. It has recently become widely known that Audubon was a slaveholder, an opponent of the emancipation of Black Americans, and a desecrator of Native American graves. We have been participating in an effort to find a name that expresses our values, and that may be adopted by other chapters in the Great Lakes states. At our October 16 meeting, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to adopt the name Laughing Whitefish Bird Alliance. That will be our official name going forward.”
