About Payne County Audubon Society
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization promoting education and wildlife conservation in Payne County, Oklahoma. We sponsor field trips and evening educational programs, an annual big day birding competition, and we award annual research grants. We are actively engaged in citizen science for ornithology by managing two Audubon Christmas Bird Counts (Stillwater and Sooner Lake) and we have led the state in submissions to the Great Backyard Bird Count. We proudly support the Important Bird Areas program in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Prairie-Chicken Festival, and the initiative to establish a statewide Audubon office. We are a local chapter of the National Audubon Society. For those so inclined, we also manage a Facebook group, which is a great place to share information, photos, and announcements relevant to birding and wildlife conservation right here in central Oklahoma.
