Do Birds and Nature Interest You?
We invite you to be a part of a community that values and protects birds and our natural world
Founded in 1949, Tucson Audubon Society is southern Arizona’s leading non-profit engaging people in the conservation of birds and their habitats. With your support, we involve people through recreational birding, extend their horizons through education programs, and engage them in conservation actions from planting trees and counting birds, to working with local, state, and national policy makers.
There are many ways you can support Tucson Audubon. Please join us and make a difference for birds and your quality of life, right here in southeast Arizona!
Tucson Audubon Society is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our tax ID# is 86-6053779
Spotting birds in support of Tucson Audubon . . . that’s the essence of Birdathon, a southeast Arizona tradition since 1987.
Between April 7th and May 7th, the “Traditional” Birdathoner will pick a 24 hour period and go birding for the birds, raising support and awareness all across southeast Arizona. The “Creative” Birdathoner will bring extra personality to their Birdathon and stretch it out over multiple days/weeks.
What is Birdathon and how do I participate?
- Like walk-a-thon, but instead of walking, go birding and gather pledges per species seen. Click the “About” button below for more details!
- Fun challenge everyone – kids, adults, beginners, and experts. How many bird species can you find?
- Hold your Birdathon any time from April 7 – May 7; your day can last from 1 hour to 24!
- Join a team or lead one! Gather a group of friends and go find birds for a fun, different activity
- Prizes will be awarded in a variety of categories for those doing a “Traditional” Birdathon that takes place during a 24 hour period.

Other Ways to Give
Tucson Audubon’s Carbon Offset Bird Project
Participating in a carbon offset program is one way that we can mitigate the effects of our automobile and air travel and will allow us to do the most good for birds. Donations will be used by Tucson Audubon to create, improve, or restore valuable bird habitat at sites we are are currently working at, including, but not limited to – the Mason Center, Paton Center for Hummingbirds, and the Historic Y. Offsetting one ton of carbon in this scenario provides either 10 shrubs, 20 pollinator plants, or 40 grasses.
