Intro

Celebrate fall migration and step into advocacy for birds at the 2024 Audubon North Carolina Summit in Durham this October! 

Audubon chapters and members have been working hard to build a state-wide community of bird lovers and bird advocates. After landmark native plants and local advocay wins in the past year, now is a great time to celebrate birds, and inspire each other. All are welcome (you don't have to be a dues-paying Audubon member), registration is now open.

Co-hosted with New Hope Bird Alliance, this weekend-long event has something for everyone and is timed perfectly to coincide with peak fall migration. Plus, we have a slate of workshops to help you hone your advocacy and birdwatching skills.
