It all started when…

Arctic Audubon Society is a volunteer, nonprofit organization that works to protect Alaskan ecosystems by encouraging research, education, and management that contributes to appreciation and good stewardship of our natural heritage. As a Chapter of National Audubon Society, Arctic Audubon Society includes the geographical area north of the Alaska Range. Chapter meetings were first held in 1979 and full chapter status was achieved November 20, 1980.

Arctic Audubon Society volunteers organize monthly public presentations fall through spring, Christmas Bird Count, and spring bird walks. We also publish monthly postcard notices or newsletters and the Fairbanks Area Hiking & Birding Guide.
