Under the umbrella of Audubon’s Mississippi Flyway, Audubon Missouri advocates for the protection of birds and their habitats throughout the Mississippi River basin. Audubon prioritizes conservation at its approximately 50 Important Bird Areas (IBAs) within the state. Working with valued partners, we have pioneered conservation efforts in wetlands, prairies and bottomland forests in support of the more than 400 species of birds that call Missouri home.
Through its premiere conservation center – The Audubon Center at Riverlands near St. Louis – Audubon engages tens of thousands of visitors and students each year. Let us show you the natural wonders of Missouri worth conserving!
