TAS 70th Anniversary Presentation
From the December, 2005 Meeting


At the December 2005 meeting, Tulsa Audubon celebrated our 70th anniversary and also recognized the many years of service provided to TAS by Aline Romero. Here is the presentation featuring some old photos of TAS members. You can also view some photos from the festivities here and you may view a 1986 article about Aline & Forrest Romero here.

The Tulsa Audubon Society was founded on April 23, 1935. This date was chosen to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of John James Audubon.

One of the first activities of Tulsa Audubon Society was the gathering and recording of data on bird observation.  The office of Recorder has been a vital to carrying out the mission of Tulsa Audubon Society.  Our first recorder was Edith Force Kassing, a founding member and inspirational science teacher.  She held the office from 1935-1938.


Tulsa Audubon Society has played an active role in conservation and bird protection in Oklahoma.  In 1977, T.A.S. member Fred Pianalto began monitoring the interior least terns that were nesting on the sand bars of the Arkansas River.  When Fred retired to Arkansas in 1992, members of Tulsa Audubon Society joined together to carry on his work.


Another long time activity has been Eagle Days.  Volunteers from T.A.S. set up scopes and assist visitors in viewing the bald eagles that feed below Keystone Dam

 

Aline Romero


Many wonderful people have contributed to the joys and successes of Tulsa Audubon Society.  One special person has contributed immeasurably to our activities. You will see her featured in many of the following pictures.  She is our own Aline Romero.  Aline has served Tulsa Audubon in many ways.  She has been President, Chairman of TMBs, Sales Chairman, leader of many fieldtrips, and much more.
