Golden Gate Audubon presents Garry George
California leads the United States in a renewable energy policy that drives large-scale wind, solar, and geothermal projects in windy areas and the desert. We also lead the nation in using new technology to avoid, minimize, and reduce conflicts with birds thanks to Golden Gate Audubon and the four other Bay Area chapters that demanded solutions to the fatalities at the Alameda County Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area. Audubon's policy is to avoid future Altamonts by siting projects right. Find out how Audubon California is making this happen through efforts to plan conservation of species and habitat concurrent with planning for renewable energy development.
Garry George is renewable energy director and chapter network director of Audubon California, based in Los Angeles. He came to the state program in 2008 after six years as a volunteer, board member, and then executive director of Los Angeles Audubon, and four years of service on the Audubon California board representing the Southern California chapters. He has worked with more than 20 chapters in California on renewable energy projects.
