A Message from the Audubon Arkansas team

The impacts of COVID-19 are unprecedented. With all in-person programs and events cancelled, we'll be using this page to help connect you to birds, conservation, and the outdoors. We want to support you through some birdy distractions, virtual learning, and more. Please reach out at uta.meyer@audubon.org with questions or suggestions. 

We are always grateful to be a part of the Arkansas conservation community, but especially now. Thanks to our friends, partners, and supporters for thinking of us during these challenging times. We hope you and yours are healthy and safe!
