The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting birds, wildlife and shared environment in North America. It works with policymakers in Washington, D.C., state legislatures and local governments throughout the country to conserve and restore natural ecosystems. It operates more than 500 local chapters throughout North America that sponsor field trips and education programs to further the cause of the Audobon Society. The organization was named in honor of John James Audubon, an American naturalist and painter that catalogued and described the birds of North America. The National Audubon Society was founded in 1896 and is headquartered in New York. In 2003, Audubon opened the doors on the Audubon Center at Debs Park, located in East Los Angeles. The facility provides nature education programs for more than 50,000 urban schoolchildren in the community.
