Audubon program April 11
- “It Matters Where Development Occurs: Sonoran Institute’s Work to Shape the Future of the West”
Diane Snyder, Northern Rockies Regional Director of the Sonoran Institute, will present a program on the Sonoran Institute's current work in the Northern Rockies Region and engage the audience in a conversation about the impact of development on avian populations -- at Sacajawea Audubon Society's April meeting.
For the past 20 years, the Sonoran Institute has worked to promote: healthy landscapes that support native plants and wildlife, diverse habitat, open spaces, clean energy and water as well as fresh air; livable communities where people embrace conservation to protect quality of life today and in the future; and vibrant economies that support prosperous communities, diverse opportunities for residents, productive working landscapes and stewardship of the natural world.
The Northern Rockies Region of the Sonoran Institute has been working in Montana’s landscapes and communities for the past 13 years, helping protect open space and working with communities to manage growth and change in a way the respects the people and lands of the State.
Diane Snyder grew up in ranching as fourth-generation resident of Wallowa County in the northeastern corner of Oregon. She managed her own herd of cattle for nearly twenty years. Before joining the Sonoran Institute and moving to Bozeman, she worked as the Director of Land Use Planning and Building Department of Wallowa County and as Vice President of Community Development for the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities. She also served on the Oregon State Board of Forestry for six years.
This Audubon program will be Monday, April 11, 2011, at 7:00 pm, in the Downstairs Community Room at the First Security Bank branch at 670 South 19th Street in Bozeman. The public is invited to attend.
