You already know that we need to take action to protect the planet, and you are already doing things that help ensure that the earth remains liveable. Take the next step to make sure your actions add up to meaningful change: Bring Audubon to your campus. 

When you introduce Audubon to your campus, you will find and engage like-minded 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.
