Our mission is to promote the conservation and appreciation of nature for environmental sustainability with a focus on birds, thorough habitat protection and education.
The Audubon Society of Ohio (ASO) was established in 1897 in the Greater Cincinnati area, and was incorporated in 1900. ASO was the first Audubon Society organized in Ohio, and is currently a local chapter of the National Audubon Society.
ASO provides educational monthly field trips designed to give hands-on experiences in the natural world. In addition to field trips to birding hot spots, our field trips also focus on the rest of the natural world, including trees, wildflowers, butterflies, insects, salamanders and other amphibians and reptiles, and much more. We concentrate on exploring local habitats; to minimize driving, most of our field trips are held in the Greater Cincinnati area. In addition to field trips, we host nine monthly evening programs per year (skipping July, August and December), devoted to topics relating to natural history and conservation. We also host special events, such as our annual Birding Class, a hands-on birding ID series taught by experts to people of all ages in the classroom and the field. The Audubon Society of Ohio actively conserves some key properties in the Hamilton County and Adams County areas. These properties provide beneficial habitat for native flora and fauna. We are also involved in many conservation projects, working cooperatively with other like-minded groups in the area.
ASO is a non-profit organization, qualified as a 501(c)(3) corporation. We are governed by a constitution and bylaws, a copy of which is available online.
