Audubon on Campus

The next generation of conservationists, making an impact today.

You want to take action to protect the planet, and may already be doing your part to help make your community and the world a better place. Audubon sees you, and we want to help. Receive the tools to make sure your actions have a lasting impact: Bring Audubon on Campus with the Audubon on Campus Program.


When you introduce Audubon to your campus, you will connect with and engage people of all backgrounds to transform institutions, communities, and the world. Audubon will provide the framework, tools, training, and support to help you build leadership skills, relationships—and your resume—while collaborating to create meaningful change on and off-campus. You may even find a career path you hadn't considered yet.

There is more than one way to get involved. Read more to discover what other students are doing on campuses across the United States, then sign up to become a campus ambassador, establish a campus chapter, or certify an existing club as an Audubon campus chapter today.
