Two active blog sites initiated by Audubon California are very helpful and informative to those wishing to keep up with local and statewide conservation issues, legislative efforts and chapter stories.
The broader, more general site is Audublog, subtitled Conservation News and Notes, may be found at http://www.audublog.org/.
Information more specific to and about chapters in California and their work is Chapter Network Blog. It is located at http://audcalchapternet.blogspot.com/.
Check them out and add your comments. Maybe even add their RSS feeds to your favorite news reader!
