New York City Audubon
About Us
New York City Audubon is a grassroots environmental organization dedicated to protecting birds, wildlife, and natural habitat in the five boroughs of New York City. Focusing only on New York City environmental issues, we are affiliated with but independent from National Audubon Society. Volunteers are integral to our mission: More than 400 volunteers contribute more than 4,500 hours a year -- assisting research on bird populations, cleaning up and restoring habitat, and leading trips and classes.
We Participate Because
New York City is home not only to eight million people, but also more than 350 species of birds. Their survival depends on the preservation of natural habitat in the city's parks, beaches, wetlands, islands, meadows, and forests. The city's last wild spaces also provide essential breathing space, renewal, and enjoyment for city residents. To protect and enhance these important natural areas, we organize volunteer events to clear trash, remove invasive plants, and plant trees and shrubs in key natural habitats.
