Audubon’s members are four times as likely to be opinion leaders, with interest and involvement in policy issues. Thousands take action as Audubon North Carolina Activists. We mobilize this formidable force through communications outreach and Chapter-based grassroots training. It is how we bring the full power of Audubon to bear on behalf of legislation addressing issues such as bird conservation, ecosystem restoration, and clean air and water. And as we further align and strengthen our North Carolina network, Audubon will become an even more powerful advocate for birds and the environment.
