To subscribe to Meckbirds: This is a moderated discussion group so you must contact Judy Walker [] to be added to the group.

Brief History

Originally established as a local bird club in the late thirties by Elizabeth and Eddie Clarkson of Wing Haven, the Mecklenburg Audubon Society became the first official North Carolina chapter of the National Audubon Society in 1970.

Mecklenburg Audubon has a long, productive history of bird conser-vation in the Charlotte area. The current membership of over 1,000 members comes from all walks of life but has one common interest - protecting habitat for birds and other wildlife. We want to share our love of nature with others through educa-tional outreach, citizen science and community partnerships.
