Upcoming Events

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and an abundance of caution, Detroit Audubon has decided to go virtual with most of our program offerings. Detroit Audubon Chapter members will be given the first opportunity to register for any in person field trips, so we encourage you to join us! Going outside and enjoying nature is a great way to relieve stress and pass these trying times. We encourage you to do so while practicing responsible social distancing.
