All CAS members are encouraged to join us as Chicago Audubon honors people and organizations who have made valuable contributions to conservation, the protection of migratory birds and other wildlife, and have helped to conserve, preserve and enhance the varied habitats and open spaces of the greater Chicago region.
The brief CAS annual members meeting will be convened after dinner and before an inspiring program.
