LEADERS: SUZANNE MCDONALD From 1989-1996 Suzanne McDonald was a partner-owner in McDonald Boat Rentals which operated out of Plumas Pines Marina. It was in this job that Suzanne learned to operate boats and to know Lake Almanor very well. While most of the tourists were interested in fishing, she was busy watching the bird life. Birding has filled the hours, edges, margins, interstices, corners, weekends, vacations, and trips of Suzanne’s lifetime ever since her love of birds began at the age of eight following baby mockingbirds around her neighborhood. Now that she is retired, Suzanne volunteers with Plumas Audubon Society as a Board member because of its many activities that further her love and passion for birds. Suzanne hopes that she can impart some of that joy onto others.
The mission of Plumas Audubon is to promote understanding, appreciation, and protection of the biodiversity of the Feather River Region, especially birds, through education, research, and the restoration and conservation of natural ecosystems.
