Dr. Trina Bayard

Director of Bird Conservation, Audubon Washington

In addition to her formative experiences exploring Puget Sound tide-pools and Cascade mountain meadows, Trina’s path to Audubon includes more than ten years of experience on a broad range of plant and wildlife studies in eastern Oregon, coastal California and coastal Connecticut including her doctoral research on Saltmarsh Sparrows. Trina’s perspective is shaped by her experience working in the public and private sectors and her studies and travel in East Africa and Southeast Asia. She brings to Audubon a dedication to advancing bird conservation in a way that is scientifically relevant, inclusive of the diverse constituencies making up our state and flyway, and mindful of how future generations may connect with and be inspired by birds.
