Seeking legal, business and finance skills on the SFBWS Board of Directors and Committees
by Ceal Craig
The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Friends Group for the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Complex, authorized by Congress to support the education, interpretation, and research activities of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society seeks to nurture in the public a sense of understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuges, their natural and cultural history, and to support the conservation, preservation, and restoration of the bay lands as essential wildlife habitat.
We envision wildlife and its habitat thriving in a healthier San Francisco Bay area as a result of increased citizen stewardship of the environment.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Society is supported by over 2,000 individual members and by donations and grants from corporations & foundations. The Wildlife Society operates bookstores at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Refuge Visitor Center in Fremont and the Environmental Education Center in Alviso.
We are accepting new Board of Director members. Those with legal backgrounds and business financial experience are particularly needed.
We are also accepting volunteers to join the Membership and Volunteer Recruitment Committee, the finance team, fund development team, and the Marketing and Communications committee.
We will be launching a social media campaign to share the Society’s mission and vision. Join us in determining the best strategy to get the word out.
A joint U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Friends conference in Region 8 is coming up in late June. Interested in attending or learning more?
