We can fly higher with your support

Seattle Audubon is able to advocate and organize for cities where people and birds thrive because of our community’s generosity. Saving birds requires both the dedication and knowledge of our volunteers who give thier time, as well as the passion and commitment of donors who contribute financial resources.

There are many ways you can protect our local feathered friends by making a gift. Choose the way(s) that feels right for you.

Membership

Join or Renew. You and your entire household can become a Seattle Audubon member for a gift of $49 or more annually. Receive exclusive members-only benefits including discounts on classes and trips, 20% off seed and books at The Nature Shop and our quarterly newsletter, Earthcare Northwest.
