Mission Statement

Audubon Chicago Region saves wildlife and habitat, and to keep it safe permanently we are hard at work creating a local culture of conservation. Though a small staff is ready to step in where necessary, most of Audubon's work is done by hundreds of volunteers. They include citizen scientists, land stewards, advocates, and more.

Description

  • A network of more than 700 citizen-science monitors, often working in cooperation with forest preserve or village officials, to monitor the health of local preserves. Monitor birds, plants, butterflies, and frogs. Learn about results of monitoring studies, which guide conservation and planning efforts throughout the region.
  • Audubon partners with public agencies to restore large complexes of prairie, shrubland and woodland. Our goals are to restore high quality plant communities with thriving wildlife populations and to support active volunteer groups for the sites.
  • Our Important Bird Areas program has added 48 Illinois sites to this global network of critical habitats. More nominations are sought.
