Chicago Audubon Society connects people with birds and nature through educational programming, field trips, advocacy, stewardship and research. 

We are a membership organization - a chapter of the National Audubon Society that covers Chicago, and Cook County suburbs except for northwest and far south.

Sister organizations that we support include the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors and Bird Friendly Chicago.

Our members enjoy observing, studying, conserving and advocating for local native birds and other wildlife.
