To advance the conservation of birds and positively impact their supporting environments.
Houston Audubon is a regional nonprofit conservation, education and advocacy organization that focuses on protecting the natural environment for birds and people. A significant part of our work is owning and managing nature sanctuaries to protect habitat for birds and provide people recreational opportunities in nature. We were accredited as a land trust in July 2017.
Our strategic plan states:
"The flight and song we nurture today defines the quality of life and sense of place we share tomorrow. Houston Audubon aims to inspire a culture of conservation and a way of life that allows us to thrive in harmony with nature. Our vision is the creation of a healthier, more beautiful place to live by leading and nurturing a community that values and supports birds."
Houston Audubon is a financially independent 501(c)(3) charitable conservation organization and is a chapter of National Audubon Society. We operate in an assigned 11-county area surrounding Galveston Bay and including Houston. Our activities extend beyond Houston and its surrounding counties when necessary to accomplish a conservation purpose.
