Background Information:

The Columbia Audubon Society was organized in 1958 and is one of 14 chapters in Missouri. The organization serves six counties: Audrain, Boone, Cooper, Howard, Monroe and Randolph. The Columbia chapter, along with the other 13 chapters and the Missouri Audubon Society, organized the Missouri Audubon Council in the 1990s. The monthly publication for the club is “The Chat,” a newsletter with announcements and upcoming events.


The Columbia Audubon Society participates in the annual Columbia Christmas Bird Count in December and the North American Migration Count in May. The club also provides field trips for schools and opportunities for the public to watch birds in the nature areas.

The nature areas include Wild Haven Nature Park, which is a 103-acre area northeast of Columbia; Columbia Audubon Nature Sanctuary, a 25-acre nature area located near Fairview Road in Columbia; and the Albert Children's Wildlife Area, which is located northeast of Columbia.
