Who We Are

Who We Are
Wake Audubon is a chapter of Audubon NC and of the National Audubon Society. We are located in Wake County, North Carolina (Raleigh and surrounding towns). We have a membership of about 1,500 and hold monthly meetings, field trips, bird walks and other activities.

Wake Audubon is made up of a diverse group of people with a variety of interests and specialties; we’re not just birdwatchers. Wake Audubon members share a common interest in wildlife, nature, nature photography, and environmental conservation. We are a non-profit organization and have no paid staff. Volunteers serve as officers and organize all of our activities.

Our mission statement:

“To foster knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of nature; to encourage responsible environmental stewardship; to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.”

Constitution and By-laws 

Wake Audubon Society is governed by a board of directors in accordance with our chapter by-laws.
The Board Governance Committee of Wake Audubon has been working on revising the bylaws for Wake Audubon, and submitted a final draft for board and member approval. The revised bylaws were accepted by the board of directors at the last board meeting (November 3, 2020) and now need to be voted on and approved by the membership of Wake Audubon in order to be accepted. We welcome your review of the revisions.
A vote of the membership will be taken at our December membership meeting on December 8, 2020. Find meeting information on our calendar.
