Columbia Audubon Society

What We Do

Columbia Audubon Society's mission is to preserve the natural world and its ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and earth’s biological diversity. We pursue these goals through education, birding and nature study, and habitat restoration.

Why We're Great

CAS helps people enjoy and learn about birds, and we help teachers educate students about nature and biodiversity. We are restoring a prairie at the Columbia Audubon Nature Sanctuary so Columbia residents can experience nature in their own backyard.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

CAS funds and hosts an annual field trip so 1,000 2nd graders can learn about nature while in nature. We fund tuition for 2 teachers to attend a National Audubon science camp, and scholarships for 2 students to attend the summer Teton Science School.
