The Rio Brazos Audubon Society promotes the enjoyment, understanding, and conservation of native birds and their habitat through birding classes, local and regional field trips, habitat restoration, and conservation advocacy. We are committed to service and education for residents and visitors to the Brazos Valley.
Rio Brazos Audubon takes an active role in public education with free presentations, meetings, and field trips open to the public. We share our experience and knowledge- from beginners to advanced birders, adults or children- to increase appreciation of, and community involvement with our local birds and environment. We also perform bird surveys on private lands, monitor a Bluebird nest box trail, maintain a chimney swift tower and butterfly garden at Lick Creek Park, and organize annual bird counts. We are a non-profit corporation with tax exempt status and an independent Chapter of the National Audubon Society. We are governed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors, with critical input from Committee Chairs.
Our monthly program meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday night of each month and are located at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History at 6:30 PM. Click here for a MAP.
