Welcome to the Cape Fear Audubon Society
the local chapter of the National Audubon Society, serving Brunswick,
Pender, New Hanover, and Onslow counties. We are proud to be serving
such an exciting area of the North Carolina coast, rich in biodiversity
Mission Statement: To conserve and restore natural ecosystems within our region, focusing on birds and other wildlife for the benefit of humanity and North Carolina’s biological diversity.
The Cape Fear region’s diverse habitat includes
salt marsh, wetlands, barrier islands, pine forest, woodlands and many
nature sanctuaries, and parks. It also has 14 Audubon-designated Important Bird Areas
We are a rapidly growing chapter dedicated to
preserving this wealth of habitat through education and helping people
connect to nature. We are not only birders, but also naturalists,
citizen scientists, and concerned citizens all with the common goal of
preserving this gem of biodiversity called the Cape Fear watershed—our
home and our children’s home.
Our meetings are held on the first Monday of
each month except for summer months and some holiday months. Check
Calendars tab for up-to-date meeting schedule. We also host field trips, bird walks, and other educational activities.
