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.

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 Arkansas.

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.

Native Plant Week Proclamations

Audubon Arkansas is a 2020 recipient of National Audubon Society's Plants for Birds Burke Grant. Advancing the use of native plants depends on increasing their visibility across the country and implementing native plant policies at the federal, state and local levels.

We and four Audubon chapters in Arkansas have started the process for having the week of April 20, 2020, be proclaimed “Native Plant Week” at state and municipal levels. Proclamations act as a spark for more public support for native plant gardening, habitat management, and ordinances.

Audubon Arkansas will make the request of Governor Hutchinson. Audubon Society of Central Arkansas, Northwest Arkansas Audubon and Tex-Ark Audubon will work with their mayors, while Hot Springs Village Audubon turns to their Property Owners' Association.
