Welcome to Audubon of the Western Everglades
Founded in 1961, Audubon of the Western
Everglades is the oldest conservation organization in Collier County. We
are one of 43 local Florida chapters dedicated to preserving the quality
of life in our respective communities.
One of our primary efforts is maintaining
an awareness of local, regional, and state environmental and conservation
issues. Accordingly, our mission, in partnership with Audubon of Florida
and National Audubon Society, is to promote an understanding of and interest
in wildlife and the environment that supports it, and to further the cause
of conservation of all of our natural resources.
We offer a variety of activities in which
everyone may participate: guided field trips to sites throughout
Southwest Florida, evening programs with guest speakers from November through
April, grants that allow county elementary schools to bring classes to
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary for field trips and for activities
at specially constructed educational trails and sites, and we have a conservation
committee that is active and influential at the local, regional, and state
levels on environmental issues.
We invite you to join us as a member,
to enjoy and support programs and activities that appeal to you, and to
become a part of preserving and protecting our natural heritage and all
of its wild life.
