Individuals join the Audubon Society for a variety of reasons.
Some join because they love anything to do with nature or wildlife. They visit Audubon sanctuaries or nature centers and take nature walks or join naturalists on field trips to observe birds, butterflies, or other wildlife.
Some join for the social aspects. They attend the meetings and special events and help out with these as needed or desired.
Still others join because they want to help create and protect habitats for nature's creatures. Perhaps they will create a naturescape in their backyard to attract birds and butterflies or they may volunteer to help protect turtles being hatched along the beaches.
Other members are strong advocates for the environment. They have dedicated themselves to educating policy makers, legislators, community planners, and developers about the consequences of plans to develop property in flood plains, paths of hurricanes, or wetlands.
Some join to participate in ecotours for their vacations or opportunities to help conservation efforts in other parts of the world.
