NHBA just awarded our first land conservation and restoration grant of $5,000 to the Eno River Association (ERA). The ERA will use these funds towards their goal of creating more diverse habitats at the Confluence Natural Area using prescribed burns. ERA’s goal will be to convert agricultural fields at the Confluence Natural Area into a Piedmont prairie and diversify the structure of the forested areas on the preserve. This will benefit birds and other wildlife. Thank you to all the other wonderful organizations that submitted proposals. We will have another conservation grant solicitation later in 2024. See more information on the Confluence Natural Area here. For details on NHBA grant funding, go here.

For over 100 years, the National Audubon Society has been a tireless voice for environmental conservation and stewardship. As the local chapter for Chatham, Durham, and Orange Counties, New Hope Bird Alliance focuses on issues affecting the Triangle region of North Carolina. Whether advocating for environmental causes at the local level, or directly improving habitat for birds and other wildlife, New Hope Bird Alliance aims to be a strong conservation leader in our community.

The North Carolina piedmont is a region rich in biodiversity. Dense forests yield to scenic rivers and creeks, rolling farm fields, and expanding human landscapes. These varied habitats support a broad range of flora and fauna. Well over 200 species of birds can be encountered here, along with mammals, reptiles, butterflies, and other “critters.” Despite rapid economic growth, much of the Triangle is still visibly wild.

Our greatest resource also presents us with our greatest challenge. The beauty of our area means more people want to live here, and future development will have a major impact on local ecosystems. The conservation committee is open to all members and encourages enthusiasm and new ideas. Please help us protect our most vulnerable wild places.
