Norman started and runs Audubon's Great Washington Birding Trail Program.
More than 250 volunteers have contributed more than 7,500 hours since 2001 to help develop the six maps published to date. In 1955, she helped start Seattle Audubon's Neighborhood Bird Program, a citizen-science effort by 48 volunteers that conduct ongoing Annual Bird Censuses.
