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.

Over 200 people attended the 2018 Drain Smart Meet the Artists Celebration at the Centre at University Park on June 26. Guests talked with the artists about their murals, voted for their favorite art, donated to support the project, and learned that you should never litter because trash on the street gets washed into our creeks through storm drains. Checkout photos from the event by Susan Williamson. Vote online now through July 26. The top three vote-getters win prize money.

Thanks to our caterers: Bravo! Flyway Brewing, and Lake Liquor. Michael Eubanks performed wonderful jazz. Thanks also to our 2018 Drain Smart sponsors: The Bernice Garden, Central Arkansas Library System, Downtown Little Rock Partnership, Hillcrest Residents Association, Hillcrest Merchants Association, and the Promenade at Chenal. Support for Drain Smart is also provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Thanks to Audubon's awesome partners who help make Drain Smart happen: Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, Arkansas Department of Transportation, Central Arkansas Water, City of Little Rock, Friends of Fourche Creek, Keep Little Rock Beautiful, Little Rock Parks and Recreation, Little Rock Water Reclamation Authority, The Promenade at Chenal, and THV11.
