Welcome to the Audubon Society of the Capital Region. We are the local chapter of the National Audubon Society, dedicated to the protection, conservation and enjoyment of birds, wildlife and the environment in the Capital Region of New York State. Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
We are dedicated to protecting nature and connecting with others using the combination of science, education, and the restoration of our local wildlife habitats.
The roughly 450 acre Black Creek Marsh Wildlife Management Area provides opportunities for hiking, hunting and trapping, fishing, and wildlife observation as it is one of the premier birding sites in the Capital District. The abundant cattail, open-water, and flooded red maple wetlands are home to beavers and adjacent to apple and pear orchids and grassy fields.
