Michael Stills has resigned as executive director of the Evergreen Audubon Nature Center after the board of directors downsized the position from three-quarters time to half-time.
Evergreen Audubon has operated a nature center in the warming hut on Evergreen Lake from April through November for the last three years.
Stills said he couldn't afford to take a salary cut from $37,000 to $24,000, because he has a family to support. The board is advertising on the website for a new director. Stills resigned at the end of the year to seek another job.
