Building the most effective conservation network in America
No other conservation organization matches the size, reach, scale, influence, diversity, and creative energy of our chapters, nature centers, volunteer leaders, and partners. At its best, our network has the knowledge and authenticity to care for birds and the places they need in communities across the country; it unites to tackle big challenges facing birds that cannot be solved by any single part of the network alone. It is also true that the Audubon network faces challenges—some significant—in capacity, diversity, and coordination. We are commited to making Audubon and its partners the most e ective conservation network in America.
A commitment to education is at the heart of the Audubon tradition. By inspiring more people in more places to value and protect the natural world, we are laying the foundation for future conservation. Audubon Centers are one of the principal elements of our education work. They have inspired more than 10 generations of Americans to learn about and protect birds, other wildlife, and the natural world. Our network of nature Centers now reaches more than a million visitors each year.
