Maryland’s two Audubon Centers and 6 chapter-owned sanctuaries include over 1620 acres of land that Audubon Chapters own and manage. These special places provide opportunities for on-site, outdoor education programs, trails for birdwatching or nature walks, and places where communities can gather to learn, share knowledge, and take action on behalf of birds and other wildlife.
With over 9,400 members, five active Audubon Society chapters serving regions throughout Maryland, and an army of more than 1,000 volunteers, Audubon’s impact is recognized across Maryland. Whether we are putting up nest boxes for Wood Ducks, monitoring songbird populations, or advocating for more bird-friendly public policies, the Audubon community is a powerful network for birds, wildlife, and people.
Audubon centers and chapters serve as hubs for local and regional conservation action and nature education, and our sanctuaries provide critical habitat to a host of birds and other wildlife, as well as peaceful respite to human visitors. Most of our properties are open to the public and we welcome you to visit our centers and hike or bird our sanctuary trails.
