Houston Audubon is a regional nonprofit conservation, education, and advocacy organization that focuses on protecting the natural environment for birds and people. A significant part of its work is owning and managing nature sanctuaries to protect habitat for birds and provide people recreational opportunities in nature.
There are several ways in which you can help Houston Audubon ensure a world of birds. Individual donations are the backbone of all of Houston Audubon's programs, and may be made by cash, check, or credit card.
Join the dedicated volunteers who do everything from accounting to nature tours and presentations to sanctuary maintenance to general office work. Head here to learn about volunteer and donation opportunities.
The annual fundraising gala benefits general operations and programs. This year, it is celebrating the Bird-Friendly Communities program, which aims to transform the greater Houston area into a thriving community that supports birds, butterflies, and other pollinators while providing more accessible opportunities for people to experience the wonder and joy of birds. The gala is typically held in the fall.
The annual Birdathon fundraising event in the spring encourages people spot as many birds as they can within a 24-hour period to compete for prizes while raising money for Houston Audubon.
Individual memberships start at $30 annually ($15 for students), but it is not required to visit the sanctuaries or volunteer. Head here to learn more about becoming a member.
