Audubon's mission is more urgent today than ever before. Natural habitat and open spaces are disappearing at an alarming rate. Mitchell Lake and its surrounding habitat is a critical stopover spot for migrating birds, one of the last before many species fly hundreds of miles across open ocean. By protecting birds, we’re also safeguarding Texas's great natural heritage for future generations, preserving our shared quality of life and fostering a healthier environment for us all.
