Audubon Texas’ Coastal Conservation program has been protecting and conserving bird populations since 1923. In 2014, we created TERN to address the growing need for bird monitoring, outreach, and hands-on restoration work along the Texas Coast. TERN provides volunteers with the tools and skills they need to become on-the-ground citizen scientists, working to increase and protect bird populations.
