Chapters enable Audubon members and others to meet and share an appreciation of their common interests. They create a culture of conservation in local communities through education and advocacy, focusing on the conservation of birds, other wildlife and conservation of important habitats.

What do chapters do?

  • Advocate for protection of birds and their habitat by supporting local, state, national and hemispheric conservation priorities
  • Offer birding field trips, identification classes, and other programming for members and the public
  • Engage children and adults in a wide assortment of educational programs
  • Coordinate outreach events including birding festivals
  • Create bird friendly communities by involving residents in habitat improvement projects
  • Provide data on the health of local bird species through Christmas Bird Counts, the Great Backyard Bird Count, breeding bird surveys, and other local monitoring projects
  • Adopt and protect Important Bird Areas
