National Audubon Society's Campus Chapters serve the next generation of conservation leaders; passionate student leaders in bird advocacy, communications, conservation, education, media, and science who collaborate to bring meaningful change to protect birds and the places they need on campus and in their communities. Through their efforts as campus chapter leaders, students can enjoy making the most of their college years while building leadership skills, relationships– and their resumes.
Campus chapters are formed within the official guidelines of your college or university and a recognition process with Audubon. We have a dedicated team to support you through this process. Email: CampusChapters@audubon.org.
Get Recognized in 4 Simple Steps:
Whether you are a student forming a new campus chapter, requesting recognition for an existing chapter or conservation group– or, are faculty or staff who would like to sponsor a campus chapter, follow these three simple steps to make it official:
1. Tell us you’re interested; fill out a simple online form. Audubon's dedicated Campus Chapter team will contact you soon. Click here to fill out the form.
2. Learn More about the program: Audubon has put together a step-by-step guide to forming your chapter, from recruiting members to drafting a constitution and developing programs. Click here to read the Campus Chapter Handbook.
3. Draft a constitution for your chapter. Your college/university will most likely ask you to draft a constitution for your campus chapter. Audubon requires this. Click here to Download a sample Campus Chapter constitution.
Audubon campus chapters have unique opportunities to protect birds and the places they need today and tomorrow– on and off campus. Each campus chapter leads at least one conservation action each academic year. Learn about Audubon Campus Chapter Conservation Actions.
Additional support and resources to help student leaders implement any of these projects are available for recognized chapters via Audubon’s internal social network, Audubon Works.

A new bill in Congress would restore longstanding protections to the Refuge.
