You know that Maine is a special place.
That’s what we believe, too. And that’s why Maine Audubon exists. As the climate changes, forests dwindle and development creeps further into sensitive wildlife habitats, Maine Audubon works to protect wildlife – and the wild places they depend on.
We serve over 50,000 people each year, with 15,000 members and 2,000 volunteers. Maine Audubon has eight centers and wildlife sanctuaries, with our two flagship locations located in the greater Portland and Bangor metro areas (Gilsland Farm Audubon Center in Falmouth and Fields Pond Audubon Center in Holden).
