The Rio Brazos Audubon Society promotes the enjoyment, understanding, and conservation of native birds and their habitat through birding classes, local and regional field trips, habitat restoration, and conservation advocacy. We are committed to service and education for residents and visitors to the Brazos Valley.
Rio Brazos Audubon takes an active role in public education with free presentations, meetings, and field trips open to the public. We share our experience and knowledge- from beginners to advanced birders, adults or children- to increase appreciation of, and community involvement with our local birds and environment. We also perform bird surveys on private lands, monitor a Bluebird nest box trail, maintain a chimney swift tower and butterfly garden at Lick Creek Park, and organize annual bird counts. We are a non-profit corporation with tax exempt status and an independent Chapter of the National Audubon Society. We are governed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors, with critical input from Committee Chairs.
Our monthly program meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday night of each month and are located at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History at 6:30 PM. Click here for a MAP.

7-4-2015 - Birding 101 - meet at Lick Creek Park at 7:30 AM (NOTE EARLIER TIME) by the Chimney Swift kiosk near the parking lot. (we need a leader for this trip, email us if you can do this)
7-11-2015 - North American Butterfly Count - meet at Lick Creek Park at 9:00 AM by the Chimney Swift kiosk near the parking lot. The event is open to all, amateurs and experts alike. Even if you have no knowledge of butterflies whatsoever you can be of great help finding them and pointing them out to the experts. Please dress appropriately for the weather, and bring plenty of water. If you have them bring your close focusing binoculars, field guides and cameras. I’d also suggest you bring plenty of sunscreen and bug spray.
