Conservation

Yolo Audubon Society strives to keep abreast of bird conservation issues of local and regional interest. Our conservation chair is Chad Roberts. He writes a column entitled Conservation Corner for the YAS newsletter the Burrowing Owl.

On 25 April 2014 Yolo Audubon Society filed a lawsuit together with Tuleyome and a group of local landowners against Yolo County and the Board of Supervisors challenging the county's approval of a wind turbine development on Bogle Vineyards, the county stating that no environmental impact report was needed via using the mechanism of a Mitigated Negative Declaration under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Petition for a Writ of Mandate is posted here.
