Each center is a vital community resource, with innovative programming that introduces people of all ages and backgrounds to nature and conservation. Education also plays a critical role, as Audubon attracts new and more diverse audiences. That's why many of our most recently developed centers are located in urban neighborhoods in cities such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Columbus, Seattle, Dallas and New York. Bird watchers provide important information for resource management and conservation planning.
Created by the Cornell Ornithology Laboratory, eBird is the number one application for tracking bird observations. eBird allows you to record the bird species you have identified in real time or after the fact. These logs are compiled by eBird and can be viewed by location, month, year, or duration. With more than 100 million observations recorded every year, eBird is more than just an application for tracking your observation.
eBird data documents the distribution, abundance, and use of bird habitat. Cornell offers a free online class to get you started. All you need is an account. The National Audubon Society project provides local guide companies with access to equipment, including binoculars, oscilloscopes and guides; improves trails and associated infrastructure; and offers basic business support, such as marketing training and customer service.
The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, across the Americas through science, promotion, education and conservation on the ground.
