What is the difference between a Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, Bexar Audubon Society, San Antonio Audubon Society, and National Audubon Society memberships and organizations?

Mitchell Lake Audubon Center is operated by the National Audubon Society and their staff members. Learn more about Audubon at Audubon.org. The Bexar Audubon Society is the local Audubon-affiliated chapter and is a seperate 501c3 nonprofit from the National Audubon Society. Learn more about the chapter and their organization at bexaraudubon.org. The San Antonio Audubon Society is not affliliated with the National Audubon Society and is a local nonprofit and birding club. Their membership is completely seperate and membership to their organization does not transfer to the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center.

Although seperate nonprofit organizations, the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, San Antonio Audubon Society, and Bexar Audubon Society often work together locally to better the world for birds.

The name "Audubon" is a proper noun and cannot be copyrighted - many organizations and companies across the country use the "Audubon" name and are not affiliated with the National Audubon Society, nor our mission to protect birds and the places they need.
