  1. This was so well done and exceptional research. The author should consider networking with the Women’s Twenith Century Club for a presentation and or lecture.

  2. Well done Alexandra. Eagle Rock resident Helen Pratt, who became president of the Audubon Society, in large part has shaped who we are today: environmental conservationists, nature lovers, bird watchers, native plant and tree aficionados. Thank you.

  3. Enjoyed this piece very much! She was probably friends with Harriet Williams Myers, who lived in Garvanza from about 1900 and was secretary of the state Audubon in 1913. She wrote a guide to western birds. These were formidable women.

  4. Where is her home located? I plan to be in the area in late May and I would love to see the property from a street view!
