Buffalo Audubon Society

About Us

Buffalo Audubon Society promotes the appreciation and enjoyment of the natural world through education and stewardship. We focus on Western New York and the Great Lakes region.

Kids at Beaver Meadow

Come visit us and enjoy miles of forested trails in our center and preserves, across Western New York, open from dawn to dusk every day. Visit our Beaver Meadow Audubon Center where you'll find exhibits, a natural history library, and places to watch birds up close.

Learn about birds, wildlife, and conservation issues through classes, lectures, and programs. Volunteer to help others learn too!

Explore our gift shop, where you'll find books, binoculars, bird feeders, gifts, and friendly people to answer your nature questions.

We are one of National Audubon Society's most active local chapters, with nearly 3,000 members and 120 volunteers, and a dedicated, knowledgeable staff.

We offer people of all ages and abilities a wide variety of hands-on natural history programs. Each year, we provide enriching educational trips, camps, and tours to over 20,000 schoolchildren and more than 2,000 adults.

Use your member discount to choose from affordable local, national, and international opportunities to explore birds, wildlife and the natural world.

Our staff and volunteers work diligently to make sure that local and statewide efforts to protect habitats, species and our quality of life get the attention and action they deserve.

Buffalo Audubon is proud to work with the Western New York Environmental Alliance and numerous partners to protect and promote the habitats and environments of Western New York - places where you can enjoy nature and wildlife and where habitats are protected. Places like Allenberg Bog near Little Valley in Cattaraugus County, Klydel Wetlands in North Tonawanda, and our Beaver Meadow Audubon Center and Preserve in North Java.
