2020 AUDUBON NORTH CAROLINA SUMMIT POSTPONED

In an effort to do our part and slow the spread of COVID-19 in North Carolina, we have decided to postpone the upcoming Audubon North Carolina Summit until the fall, when birds will once again begin migration.

The good news is that we can still enjoy birds as they return to North Carolina this spring, even from the comfort of our homes. In the spirit of brightening our days in these challenging times, please join us for a series of virtual field trips on Saturday, April 18.

Some details are below. Stay tuned for more, as well as information on the rescheduled summit next fall in Charlotte. We’re working with local hosts Mecklenburg Audubon Society on logistics and will post the dates here as soon as they are confirmed.

Summit Information:

Join us in the Queen City for Audubon North Carolina’s biennial convention designed to bring together our network of dedicated chapter leaders, campus leaders, volunteers, soon-to-be volunteers, and partners from across the state. This can’t-miss event will feature an array of inspiring speakers, in-depth workshops, exciting field trips, and the camaraderie and networking opportunities that only the Audubon North Carolina Summit can provide.

North Carolina’s largest city, Charlotte is a vibrant, birdy place to gather, learn, network, and, yes, go birding (the Queen City has plenty of 15-warbler hotspots!). But you don’t have to be obsessed with birds to have a great time; many field trips focus more on gardens and rare native plants. Mecklenburg Audubon Society members are excited to welcome the entire Audubon North Carolina network to Charlotte.

  • Hear from inspiring speakers.
  • Enjoy exciting field trips and birding adventures. 
  • Make new friends and share ideas about ways to help birds.
