The Washington State Audubon Conservation Committee (WSACC) is composed of the conservation chairs of the 25 independent Audubon chapters in Washington. WSACC was formally chartered in 2001 to coordinate and prioritize legislative lobbying and other policy efforts by the Audubon flock to protect habitat for birds and other wildlife through conservation action.
The Washington State Audubon Conservation Committee (WSACC) establishes and advocates statewide for "One Audubon" policy positions and recommendations to preserve, protect and restore bird populations, other wildlife and the interconnected habitats on which they rely. Its goal is to create a powerful, cohesive voice for "One Audubon" conservation priorities of statewide and regional significance.
Resolutions may be submitted to WSACC following the WSACC Resolution Adoption Process.
