Our Mission and Programs



Our Mission:  Building places where birds and people thrive. 


Our Vision for the Future:  A conservation-minded and fully engaged Georgia where birds prosper, habitats flourish, and understanding grows.


We approach our work through conservation, education, and advocacy.


Atlanta Audubon Society is a member-supported, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting Georgia’s birds and their habitats. We are a thriving, bird-focused organization that combines serious conservation, education, and advocacy with activities that build community and foster the joy of birding.


Atlanta Audubon serves all 20 metro Atlanta counties and areas of North Georgia.  We engage across the state in collaboration with other groups that share our mission. We speak for the birds to create a public policy focus on conservation of birds and their habitats. With a committed staff, a focused board, and a flock of talented volunteers, Atlanta Audubon strives to share our passion with others to connect people with nature and to inspire everyone to be stewards of birds and the environment. We build trust and credibility by being honest, hardworking, and responsible with rigorous attention to sound science and long-term thinking.


Just as bird diversity strengthens ecosystems, the diversity of human experiences, traditions, and viewpoints strengthen our conservation, education, and advocacy efforts.
