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.
