For 75 years, San Diego Audubon has been defending our region’s birds, unique biodiversity, and threatened habitats through advocacy, education, and restoration.
With the help of their members, volunteers, donors, and community partners, they are working to protect endangered species like the California Least Tern and the Light-Footed Ridgway’s Rail; restore the natural wetlands of Mission Bay to ensure cleaner water, greater climate resiliency, and improved public access along the bayfront; preserve natural spaces at their two wildlife preserves for the plants and wildlife who call them home, and the people who love to visit; and inspire and educate the next generation of environmental stewards.
There are many ways for you to get involved with San Diego Audubon! Visit them at Anstine-Audubon Nature Preserve in Vista or at Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary in Lakeside. Sign up for their email list. Become a member (there are some great perks!). Learn more at sandiegoaudubon.org.
February 21 – 25 is the 2024 San Diego Bird Festival, an opportunity for bird lovers from all backgrounds to celebrate these special animals. The San Diego Bird Festival will feature keynote speakers Christian Cooper, Julia Zarankin, and Tiana Williams-Claussen along with hands-on workshops, interactive art displays, bilingual programming, and, of course, more opportunities for birdwatching than we can count!
