Audubon Nebraska’s mission is the same as that of the National Audubon Society: The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow.
January marks the official launch of the Year of the Bird – an exciting partnership between National Geographic, Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, BirdLife International, and dozens of other partners, in honor of the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
The Year of the Bird will be about celebrating the wonder of our feathered friends, examining how our changing environment is driving dramatic losses among bird species, and highlighting what actions people can take to reverse this trend.
