Protecting birds and their habitats

Winter Sparrow Workshop

Conservation in our Community

Strawberry Plains Audubon Center has employed the rich hunting and farming legacy of the Southeast to unite the management objectives of bird conservation with those of working lands. Combined with a growing constituency that uses native plants to convert home landscapes into stopovers and havens for birds and other wildlife, this has been a powerful model for successful conservation at both the large and small scale. Over the last decade, our conservation programming, ecological consulting, and propagation and dissemination of native plants has resulted in the restoration and protection of 40,000 acres of habitat for 29 Watchlist bird species, countless neotropical migrants, songbirds, ducks, and a diversity of other wildlife.

Join us in helping restore and impact the next 40,000 acres.
