Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis
In 1939 the Minneapolis Public Library organized seven science clubs for citizens interested in various aspects of the natural environment. One of these, the Minneapolis Bird Club, met monthly and went on birdwatching field trips. In 1949, the Minneapolis Bird Club became a branch of the National Audubon Society, and in 1975 the name was changed to the Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis.
The Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis currently has about 2,500 members. Of these, about 200 participate in a variety of activities, from field trips to attending program meetings to helping with conservation efforts. The remainder help with the important job of supporting Audubon in its conservation and education efforts nationally, statewide, and locally.
Our Conservation Committee is currently involved in helping in removal of invasive species, such as buckthorn and garlic mustard, that crowd out native plants and are less conducive to survival of both migratory and locally nesting birds.
