Ozaukee Washington Bird Coalition Standing Up for Birds at Riveredge & on Zoom

“Standing Up for Birds” by Shawn Graff, American Bird Conservancy’s vice president for U.S. and Canada operations. For more than 25 years, ABC has been standing up for birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. Its strategic approach to conservation drives results that are measurable, with significant strides to prevent the extinction of the most endangered birds, conserve important bird habitat, reduce top threats to birds, and build an Americas-wide community of bird conservationists.

Graff joined ABC’s leadership team in 2016 after serving for 13 years as executive director of the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust, based in West Bend. Shawn leads ABC conservation programs and projects in the Great Lakes region, concentrating on fundraising and building high level relationships with public and private partners and conservation stakeholders. He also helps oversee forest management grants in the region with a special emphasis on leading ABC’s effort to restore habitat for the Golden-winged Warbler in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. With the assistance of the late Noel Cutright, Graff led the land trust’s 2008 purchase of a failing golf course along the west shore of Lake Michigan and its subsequent conversion into Forest Beach Migratory Preserve, which has since recorded 266 avian species.
