What We're About
Although Denver Audubon has evolved since we were founded in 1969, we remain committed to birds, wildlife, and our Denver metro community.
Denver Audubon is an independent chapter of the National Audubon Society. The “independent” means that the national organization provides only a small fraction of our funding and that we direct our own mission and initiatives. This allows us to focus on local issues that matter to you, right in your backyard.
WHAT WE STRIVE FOR
Inspiring actions that protect birds, other wildlife, and their habitats through education, conservation, and research.
To transform Denver into the most bird-friendly city in the United States.
To accomplish both our mission and vision, we educate so that people may better advocate for birds and nature, we develop conservation strategies so that our community may better protect our environment, and we support research of Colorado wildlife so that scientists may better understand the effects of human activity.
