We’re thankful for you!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Bedford Audubon. With such a small Staff, we rely on volunteers to help us with projects big and small. We wouldn’t be nearly as successful without them! Volunteers bring energy, joy, and hope to the mission. We’re highlighting some of our Volunteers during this season of thanks and giving to show our appreciation for them.

Thank you, Alana Shizume!

Alana is a junior at Cornell University, where she’s current on leave. While she’s away from Cayuga’s waters, Alana is working at the Katonah Village Library as a 3D Printing Instructor and general technology help (that we can attest to, as she helped troubleshoot and fix some technology problems during our September program at the Library!).

At Bedford Audubon, Alana has been a mainstay in our Leon Levy Native Garden. Thank you, Alana!

What’s Alana’s favorite bird?

Alana grew up with chickens, so she loves birds the same way dog people love dogs. Her favorite bird is, of course, Gallus gallus (the chicken). As far as wild birds go, she likes clever birds with attitude, like Northern Mockingbirds.
