This group enjoys local (and regional) trips to see wildlife in the Raleigh, Wake County area of North Carolina.  We focus on birdwatching, and we enjoy teaching anyone who is new to birding.  We welcome visitors to the area who want to attend our trips.

We also volunteer for various events, including river cleanups, prairie management at local parks, nestbox maintenance, helping with events at various parks and museums, and "citizen science" projects (such as Christmas Bird Count and Great Backyard Bird Count).

Wake Audubon has a group for youth (teens 12 - 18); you can read more about the Young Naturalists Group at as the trips for YN are not posted on this Meetup site.

There is no requirement to join Wake Audubon Society in order to be a member of this Meetup.  There is no fee for this Meetup.  We encourage you to join Wake Audubon, however, as we depend on member fees to support our environmental projects: Wake Audubon meets on the second Tuesday of each month, 7:30 p.m. in Meeting Room A of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, 11 West Jones Street, Raleigh.   The meeting is open to the public.

Wake Audubon Society is a member of Audubon NC and of the National Audubon Society.  We have a membership of about 1,200 and hold monthly meetings, field trips, bird walks and other activities.  Wake Audubon is made up of a diverse group of people with a variety of interests and specialties; we're not just birdwatchers. Wake Audubon members share a common interest in wildlife, nature and environmental conservation:


Mission Statement:  "To foster knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of nature; to encourage responsible environmental stewardship; to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity."
