This Illinois Audubon Society portal is here to help our members, chapters, affiliates and like-minded organizations connect with some of the most engaging and dynamic voices in natural resource research and conservation.
Nature Talks, are you listening?
Here you will find some of the regional experts in the natural sciences, from big picture ideas like restoration ecology and climate remediation, to research in urban wildlife and endangered species management. There are programs that explore the finer details on birds, bees, butterflies, lightning bugs, bats and box turtles. From bird migration to population dynamics, difficult bird ID to the history of the Illinois Audubon Society, art and science blend and entertaining programs abound. You can also search by topic or theme, location and whether they are in-person or virtual.
Our goal is to provide a more diverse chorus of voices so you and your organization can more clearly hear the many ways nature inspires and informs our world… because, you know… Nature Talks, and we are listening.
