Officers of the club are Mary Robinson, president; Bill Luening, secretary; Susan Taylor and Ronnie Thomas, project masters. The National Audubon Society sponsors Audubon Junior clubs. Miss Trogdon states, "The National Audubon Society has found that until children develop an interest in birds, mammals, insects, trees and other nature subjects, they have little interest in conservation of natural resources. It is for this reason that the Society devotes a great deal of time and money to the organization of Audubon Junior clubs. These clubs were founded in 1910 with a gift of $15,000 from Mrs. Russell Sage to the National Audubon Society.
