Chevy Chase, MD - “I am angry and extremely disappointed in President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement - the world’s first treaty on climate change,” said Lisa Alexander, Executive Director of the Audubon Naturalist Society (ANS). “It’s short-sighted and Ill-conceived.”

“And how ironic. On the very same day, close to the very same hour, that ANS is unveiling plans to nurture in our children even more love and care for the environment, the president has put our local, national, and global environment at even greater risk.”

“Audubon Naturalist Society wants to send this very important message."

  • Our community values environmental protection
  • If all of us, together, stand up to fight for the good laws that protect nature right here in our own DC metro region and beyond, we, and the environment, will be stronger
  • Because of our supporters, we are able to defend the natural world, just as we’ve done for the past 120 years. With 194 other countries, including China, planning to stick to the climate change accord, nature has hope. With every member and supporter rising up to take action for the environment, so do we at ANS.”
