Membership at the National and Local Level
National Audubon and the local chapter of Ventura Audubon are separate 501(c)3 non-profit corporations. National Audubon is a respected and influential voice on public policy issues from town halls to the U.S. Capitol. They are the leading voice for birds using scientific research and fact based reporting. They align and strengthen the national network by establishing mission supported priorities through state organizations like Audubon California. Audubon California then provides staff support to 49 local chapters as well as granting funds for local projects. Audubon California also operates several wildlife refuges including the Kern River Preserve. Donations at the National or Local Chapter level are both set at a minimum of $20.
National Audubon Society
Joining the National Audubon Society includes membership in Ventura Audubon for the first year only because $20 of the donation is returned to this chapter.
