Our Mission

The mission of the Audubon Society of Rhode Island is to protect birds, other wildlife and their habitats through conservation, education and advocacy, for the benefit of people and all other life.

Who We Are

The Audubon Society of Rhode Island is an independent, not-for-profit environmental organization dedicated to statewide environmental education, conservation and advocacy. Established in 1897, it is the oldest environmental organization in the state.

Audubon is one of the largest environmental educators in Rhode Island, reaching well over 20,000 students of all ages each year. Since acquiring its first wildlife refuge in 1924, Audubon Society of Rhode Island has grown to become one of the largest private landholders in Rhode Island. It now protects nearly 10,000 acres of wildlife habitat for future generations of Rhode Islanders. Many Audubon wildlife refuges are open to the public for wildlife viewing and enjoyment. Its vigilant advocacy programs and partnerships have kept the public and government informed of threats to the environment for over 100 years.

Members of Audubon are kept informed through the Report, and eWing, our monthly email newsletter. Please consider joining the thousands of committed Audubon Society of Rhode Island members as we preserve and protect our precious environment together. 
Audubon Society of Rhode Island is not affiliated with the National Audubon Society.
