The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Audubon’s state, regional, national, and international programs, nature centers, and chapters have an unparalleled wingspan that reaches millions of people each year to inform, inspire, and unite diverse communities in conservation action. As a sentinel species, we recognize that the fate of birds is inextricably tied to the fate of us all.
Audubon Mid-Atlantic’s mission—like that of its parent organization, the National Audubon Society—is to protect the places that people and birds need today and tomorrow, through science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Where birds thrive, people prosper. Audubon is committed to the sustainability of our planet and is working to mitigate the growing harmful impact of climate change. Audubon Mid-Atlantic serves a broad constituency of more than 100,000 members. Our grassroots network includes 26 local Audubon chapters and we serve over 75,000 people annually through our conservation, education, and advocacy programs. Our Pennsylvania centers—The Discovery Center in Philadelphia, and the John James Audubon Center in Montgomery County—along with Patterson Park Audubon Center in Baltimore, represent three of Audubon’s 41 centers.
This two-year position is funded by the FAO Schwarz Fellowship program and National Audubon Society and is designed to provide new college graduates who have the potential to become future social impact leaders with exposure to nonprofit organizations and training.
