Join us in Milwaukee for Audubon’s biennial convention designed to bring together Audubon’s vast network of dedicated chapter, state, center, national, and international leaders from across all four flyways. This can’t-miss event will feature an array of inspiring speakers, in-depth workshops and discussions, exciting field trips, and the camaraderie and networking opportunities that only the Audubon Convention can provide. Situated on Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a beautiful and historic place to gather, learn, and network. The Wisconsin Audubon Council, Milwaukee Audubon Society, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, and the Audubon Great Lakes team are excited to welcome the whole Audubon network to Milwaukee.

  • Hear from inspiring speakers.
  • Join conservation, science, and outreach workshops and training sessions led by a variety of experts and Audubon leaders.
  • Enjoy exciting field trips and birding adventures. 437 bird species recorded in Wisconsin!

The Audubon Convention will take place at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center—a beautiful, historic Art Deco hotel centrally located in Milwaukee and a Travel Green Wisconsin–certified business. All activities will take place under one roof, and you will be a short walk from Lake Michigan and numerous parks and attractions.
