General

  • Mission:
  • Audubon Pennsylvania is the state office of the National Audubon Society, an organization in its second century of inspiring people to conservation action. While Audubon Pennsylvania is legally a part of the national organization and shares its mission and policies, we are mandated to establish statewide conservation and education programs and independently pursue local funding to support these efforts.

    Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity in Pennsylvania. With a network of 21 local chapters and 30,000 members across the state, we achieve our conservation goals through science, education and public policy.

    Our Vision: We envision a Pennsylvania with a rich and diverse natural heritage, where there is ample habitat for birds and other wildlife, where a majority of citizens appreciate and participate in their natural environment, and whose children are educated and motivated to become the conservation leaders of tomorrow.

    Programs
    The cornerstone of our conservation efforts is the Important Bird Areas (IBA) program, through which we have identified 85 areas of greatest significance to bird populations and have prioritized the areas with the most potential to garner citizen awareness and stewardship. Audubon is BirdLife International’s official global partner for the IBA program in North America, and Pennsylvania was the first state in the nation to adopt the program. As a result, we continue to lead program efforts nationally, advancing conservation plans for the most critical habitats.

    Our Audubon At Home program launched an online Bird Habitat Recognition project, the first of its kind in the Audubon network, to engage landowners and property caretakers in healthy landscaping choices. We have demonstration native habitat gardens at local schools, parks and properties throughout the state.

    Through education, outreach, and centers, Audubon is creating a constituency of children and families that understand and care about the environment. In 2004, the National Audubon Society entered into a 50-year partnership with Montgomery County to manage John James Audubon’s historic first home in America – Mill Grove. The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove became the first Audubon Center in Pennsylvania. Beginning with programs in Philadelphia schools and with local community groups, we are building the partnerships and local support necessary to establish Pennsylvania’s second Audubon Center at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia’s Strawberry Mansion community. We are also expanding education efforts along the Kittatinny Ridge in Carlisle through the Cliff Jones Field Station initiative for the Audubon Hawk Watch at Waggoner’s Gap.

  • History:
  • In 1905, the National Association of Audubon Societies was incorporated, changing its name to the National Audubon Society in 1940. For more than 100 years, Audubon has been working to protect birds, other wildlife, and their habitats throughout the country.

    Audubon has had a presence in Pennsylvania since 1896 with chapters and members monitoring and protecting birds. Early chapter members influenced federal bird protection laws that changed the fashion industry and inspired an American conservation movement. Audubon Pennsylvania was established in 1997 as the state office of the National Audubon Society to lead a centralized, statewide conservation effort through programs in science, education and public policy.

    With nearly 30,000 members and 21 local chapters, we accomplish our conservation goals through science, education and policy. The cornerstone of our conservation efforts is the Important Bird Area (IBA) program, through which we have identified 85 areas of greatest significance to bird populations. Currently, eight of the state’s IBAs located in southeastern Pennsylvania, including Fairmount Park and John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge, are among the most dangerously threatened.
