Audubon Minnesota is a state office of the National Audubon Society and a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible. Established in 1979, Audubon Minnesota shares Audubon's 100-year heritage of working to protect our environment. While we are part of the national organization, we establish our own statewide programs and pursue our own funding for Minnesota efforts.
Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.
Audubon Minnesota believes that what is good for birds is good for people too including healthy habitats and clean water and air. We deliver conservation results by focusing on three program areas supported by science, education, and advocacy:
Urban Conservation. Audubon Minnesota engages people to improve habitat where they live and work and to advocate for bird-friendly practices in their communities.
River Conservation. Audubon Minnesota reduces wetland degradation, agricultural runoff, and loss of native habitat to invasive species.
Prairie & Grassland Conservation. Audubon Minnesota's work ensures that our state continues to be a stronghold for birds.
