Madison Audubon Society, established in 1935 as the Madison Bird Club, is today one of the most dynamic Audubon chapters in the nation, and a nationally accredited land trust. We bring birds into the lives of our more than 3,000 local members (and many others!) throughout south-central Wisconsin. And not just birds—we view birds as ambassadors for the entire natural world in all its richness of plants and animals, butterflies and bees.
