Who We Are


Founded in 1946, Birmingham Audubon is Alabama’s leading non-profit organization engaging people in the enjoyment and conservation of birds, their habitats, and the natural world. A certified chapter of the National Audubon Society serving central Alabama (Jefferson, Shelby, Bibb, Blount, Chilton, St. Clair, and Walker Counties), we incorporated as a state non-profit corporation on November 22, 1974, and were granted 501(c)3 status as a charitable non-profit organization in 1976.

Local memberships* provide Birmingham Audubon with essential funding to take action on behalf of birds and the people who love them. We hope you’ll join us!

*National Audubon members within our service area automatically receive a Birmingham Audubon membership.

Note: We are currently compiling seventy years of historical documents for the new Birmingham Audubon Archives. If you have relevant materials—like the early newspaper clipping below—and would like to donate to our collection, please contact us at info@birminghamaudubon.org, subject line: “Archives.”
