Krystal Kyer to Leave Tahoma Audubon (in good hands!)
It is with a heavy heart, fond memories, and also much hope for a bright future, that I am writing to tell you that I will be leaving Tahoma Audubon after nearly ten years with the organization to pursue new opportunities in public policy, advocacy, and natural resource management. These are my passions and what energizes me, and I hope to be able to pursue this work in the Tacoma and Puget Sound area of our beautiful state.
I am proud of the work I've done to sustain and strengthen the organization. In my time with Tahoma Audubon, we've seen many conservation successes on issues from forests to agriculture to shorelines to biodiversity to fossil fuels and climate change. We should celebrate our victories!
Despite a recession and downsizing, we continue to grow and deliver programs, classes, field trips and more to serve Pierce County residents -- people and birds, alike. We couldn't do it without our members, volunteers, and donors like you!
I know that the board and staff are prepared for a new leader to take the organization into its 50th year. I will be here for a few more months in this role, and I am delighted to see the board of directors already taking action to find the next Executive Director. I will do my best to ensure a smooth transition, and I look forward to continuing to be a member of Tahoma Audubon. You may even see me on more field trips in the future!
