Conservation Project For Birds North Carolina

New Hope Audubon advocates for birds and other wildlife in Chatham, Durham, and Orange Counties in North Carolina. By engaging at the local and state levels, our membership aims to protect vital natural resources, including the native habitats that make our region unique. These resources include waterways, green spaces, forests, and rural buffers, as well as the human landscapes that play a role in supporting wildlife.

New Hope Audubon is the steward of two internationally designated Important Bird Areas: Jordan Lake and the Eno River. These areas provide critical habitat for regional bird populations and eastern migrants, as well as reptiles, mammals, and other wildlife. In addition, our area of the Piedmont is home to several vulnerable bird species, including Chimney Swift, Prothonotary Warbler, and Wood Thrush.

New Hope Audubon is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization. As a local chapter of the National Audubon Society, we are a recognized voice for wildlife and for the people who appreciate the outdoors. Through collective Calls to Action, our membership aims to influence environmental decisions within our tri-county area.
