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.

Fourche Creek Urban Water Trail Mile Markers

Thanks to Arkansas Canoe Club members and Friends of Fourche Creek volunteers Cowper Chadbourn and Kendal Strayhorn, there are now river mile markers along the Fourche Creek Urban Water Trail. This 4.4-mile stretch of Fourche Creek winds through beautiful bottomland hardwood forest. Access points are at Benny Craig Park (upstream) and Interstate Park (downstream).
