Mission Statement

Michigan Audubon connects birds and people for the benefit of both through conservation, education, and research efforts in the state of Michigan.


Formed and incorporated in 1904, Michigan Audubon is the state's oldest conservation organization. Michigan Audubon's commitment to birds continues in the form of organized bird-related data collection by a community of "citizen scientists." Likewise, the organization educates thousands of bird watchers each year through a series of educational programs, events, and an annual conference. Michigan Audubon's bird sanctuary network is growing and includes thousands of acres of protected bird habitat from Jackson County to the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Currently, Michigan Audubon maintains a membership of 2000 individuals and businesses and 41 active local chapters of Michigan Audubon statewide.

Michigan Audubon protects more then 3,500 acres of important wildlife habitat in 19 sanctuaries in the upper and lower peninsulas. Rivers, lakes, marshes, bogs, fens, grasslands, hardwoods, and northern conifer communities are found in these protected areas. These lands not only serve as a refuge for many species of wildlife, but they also preserve a wide range of our state's valuable natural resources and are used for recreation, education, and research. Michigan Audubon is a partner in the Important Bird Areas program which identifies significant tracts of bird habitat which may need protection for the sustainability of threatened and endangered bird populations.
