Who we are

The Most Influential Conservation Organization in Arkansas for Birds and Other Wildlife

Through science, education, and advocacy, we work across the state to preserve habitat and protect bird species that are of state, national and global concern; and we identify and support Important Bird Areas (IBAs), a hallmark of Audubon’s efforts worldwide.

A Leader in Setting a Course for Environmental Sustainability in Arkansas

It begins with birds, but our mission connects people to nature on a much wider scale. We work on preventing air and water pollution, promoting land conservation, and reducing the impact of global climate change. By building creative public-private alliances, engaging diverse audiences and understanding how to invest in a sustainable economy, we are shaping a brighter future for Akansas. 

The Arkansas State Office of the National Audubon Society

As part of the National Audubon Society we are able to contribute to a broader conservation strategy that recognizes the need to protect wildlife and habitats at a landscape scale, and to maximize the global impacts of local action.

Audubon Arkansas 2016 Wrap Up

DONATE HERE

This project has a conservation impact on 1.8 million acres of land and improved outcomes for four priority bird species.

As we move into the Holiday Season, it's a good time to reflect on this year's accomplishments. I am proud of the work Audubon Arkansas has accomplished in 2016. 

  • 1,000s of visitors, both young and old, have come to the Little Rock Audubon Center.
  • 20 tons of trash and tires have been cleaned out of Fourche Creek.
  • 100s of pounds of native grass and forb seed has been harvested from Arkansas prairies that will bring back Eastern Meadowlark and Northern Bobwhite  to our state.
  • We will save more money and use less fossil fuel thanks to the work that has been accomplished in energy efficiency

Despite the headwinds we now face, we are resolved to make sure that 2017 is even better. If you are willing to stand with us and make sure that we protect and preserve the Natural State, please consider closing out this year with a donation. You can DONATE HERE

Happy Holidays!
