Be Part of Bird Conservation in Michigan

There are so many great ways you can get involved with Michigan Audubon and make a difference, from becoming a member to donating to creating a bird-friendly yard, volunteering for a stewardship workday, or participating in a citizen science project. While we are proud of our history and heritage as Michigan’s oldest conservation organization, we are a grassroots organization with a statewide mission. Your involvement and support make all the difference for our work!


Michigan Audubon is a 501(c)3 and is funded completely through grants and donations from foundations and individuals like you. We can’t continue our good work in this great state without your support! Your donations fund our bird sanctuaries, on-the-ground conservation work, environmental education initiatives, and our programs (Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, Purple Martin and Chimney Swift conservation), advocacy and policy work to help protect land and wildlife, and research to help us better understand and meet the changing needs of birds in our state and beyond.
