Michigan Audubon Chapter Network

Michigan Audubon’s network of 32 local chapters offer community programs and field trips, participate in local, state and national bird counts, and serve as sanctuary stewardship groups. Many chapters are also leaders in local grassroots conservation efforts. We recommend becoming a member of your local chapter to develop your birding skills or to just enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded bird enthusiasts.
