Collier County Audubon Society
Founded in 1961, the Collier County Audubon Society is the oldest conservation organization in Collier County. We are one of 43 local Florida chapters dedicated to preserving the quality of life in our respective communities.
One of our primary efforts is maintaining an awareness of local, regional, and state environmental and conservation issues. Accordingly, our mission, in partnership with Audubon of Florida and National Audubon Society, is to promote an understanding of and interest in wildlife and the environment that supports it, and to further the cause of conservation of all of our natural resources.
We offer a variety of activities in which everyone may participate: guided field trips to sites throughout Southwest Florida, evening programs with guest speakers from November through April, grants that allow county elementary schools to bring classes to Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary for field trips and for activities at specially constructed educational trails and sites, and we have a conservation committee that is active and influential at the local, regional, and state levels on environmental issues.
