Forsyth Audubon works to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, wildlife and their natural habitats for the benefit of humanity and North Carolina’s biological diversity.
If you enjoy exploring the outdoors and discovering the natural areas of Forsyth County, then Forsyth Audubon may be for you. Here are some great prorgams and ways to connect with this local club.
1. Share the Wood Thrush Connection with your favorite elementary students
Learn about bird migration and what you can do to help migratory birds survive and thrive through the perils of climate change, light pollution, and other human-centered threats. Want more? Forsyth Audubon volunteers will bring this program to classrooms and other groups.

3. Learn more about "birdability" or increasing access to birding trails
Birding is for EVERYONE! Forsyth Audubon’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (EDI) team takes action on “birdability” to ensure access to birding trails for people with wheelchairs and a variety of mobility challenges. You can find more information at www.birdability.org.
Attend our virtual Forsyth Audubon Chapter Meeting on Tuesday, April 27, at 7pm to tune in with guest speaker Freya McGregor, Birdability Coordinator.
4. Join the global Audubon Society Bird Counts
You don’t have to be an expert, just be willing to get out in nature and count birds to your best ability. There are three annual global Audubon Society bird counts. During in-person counts, we can combine beginning birders with more experienced birders to create birding teams to cover designated count areas for the Christmas Bird Count and the Spring Bird Count. If you’d like to count birds from home, you can join in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Check out this short informational video to learn more.
