We are a local chapter of the National Audubon Society, and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization promoting education and wildlife conservation in Payne County, Oklahoma. We regularly sponsor field trips and evening presentation programs, award annual research grants, and sponsor an annual big day competition. We are actively engaged in citizen science for ornithology by managing two Audubon Christmas Bird Counts (Stillwater and Sooner Lake), and for the past several years 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. For those so inclined, we also manage a Facebook group, which is a great place to share information, photos, and announcements relevant to central Oklahoma.
