MISSION STATEMENT
Audubon Dallas supports the conservation of birds and other wildlife, the protection of habitat and biodiversity, and the provision of education and oportunities for our entire community to observe and appreciate birds and nature.

Get Involved
Audubon Dallas relies on the involvement and support of individuals like you to conserve the birds, wildlife, and natural ecosystems of the Dallas area. Find out about your volunteer opportunities.

About Us
Audubon Dallas was incorporated in 1973 as a chapter of the National Audubon Society. Today, Audubon Dallas consists of approximately 2,300 members with a focus on birds and wildlife. One of our primary goals is to raise funds in order to expand our current programs, field trips and volunteer efforts in order to reach more children and family groups. We hope these family programs will foster discussions in the home, and make every family aware of the important role it plays in the local environmental community. We teach about our local flora and fauna including the importance of the preservation of local ecosystems through conservation. We publish a newsletter and keep records of the birds of Dallas County.

AUDUBON DALLAS IS THE PROUD SPONSOR OF THE NORTH-CENTRAL TEXAS MASTER BIRDER PROGRAM (NCTMB).
NCTMB is a course in field ornithology for intermediate-level birders. It is designed to provide participants with techniques to enhance applicants’ existing bird identification skills and general knowledge of birds, ecology, conservation, and habitat requirements in Texas. The Application for the course will be available on the website June 1, 2014. More information at NCTMB.

OUR CHAPTER'S POSITION ON AERIAL SPRAYING FOR MOSQUITO CONTROL
We fully support the 2013 Audubon Texas West Nile virus prevention policy as linked here and urge everyone to practice the 4 Ds of mosquito control to prevent the spread of the West Nile virus in our community. As guardians of the natural world, we have grave concerns about the immediate and long-term effects of the category of pesticides being used for ground and aerial spraying in Dallas County. The pesticides typically used are adulticide sprays, such as Biomist or Duet ULV, with the active ingredient of permethrin. Permethrin is toxic to honeybees and other beneficial insects, fish, and aquatic invertebrates. Ground-based spraying should be isolated to areas around specific mosquito trap sites that have tested positive for West Nile virus, or, in a public health emergency, only to areas where clusters of human cases have been confirmed. We oppose aerial spraying of adulticides.
