Join our flock and help protect the birds we love and the rich ecology of the state we call home.
When Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast at the end of August, it dealt a major blow to the colonial water birds we love such as the Brown Pelicans, Roseatte Spoonbills, Black Skimmers, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets. At Audubon Texas, we are proud that migrating birds found refuge at our Audubon Centers across the state, providing temporary relief until they could complete their journey.
We truly believe that “If you take care of the birds, you take care of most of the big problems in the world.” When floodwaters cleared, Audubon Texas scientists were on the ground assessing the damage to critical bird habitat along the middle and upper regions of the Texas gulf coast. This work was not easy and is far from being complete, but we will not stop until the birds you love, from Reddish Egret to Tricolored Heron, have safe and secure habitat to return to during the upcoming nesting season, and for years to come.
In Texas we know the power of coming together to help one another. Together we have the knowledge, power, and influence to make a significant and lasting impact to protect the rich ecology of the state we love. On behalf of the nearly 600 species of birds who call Texas home, and the 40,000 school students and 100,000 overall visitors who visit one of our nature centers: Dogwood Canyon, Mitchell Lake or Trinity River, we ask you to Join the flock by supporting us today.
With warmest regards and best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season,
The Honorable Rob Franke, Mayor, Cedar Hill,
Texas Board Chair, Audubon Texas

Over the last 100 years, urban sprawl has transformed 150 million acres of farmland and native habitats across the United States into buildings, hardscape, and 40 million acres of highly manicured lawns. Filled with exotic plants, these urban landscapes no longer support the healthy, functioning ecosystems that birds and wildlife need.
