Formerly the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society, Blue Ridge Audubon is a chapter of the National Audubon Society, serving Buncombe, Henderson, and surrounding counties in western North Carolina.

Our mission is to protect birds and the places they depend on. We believe that a world in which birds thrive is a world that benefits all living things.


Our vision is a vibrant and just community where the protection of birds and our natural world is valued by everyone.
