Who We Are
Decatur Audubon, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, is located in the heart of Central Illinois’ farmland. The region, rich in agricultural resources, also has abundant natural areas providing habitat and sanctuary to both - local and migratory birds.
The Sangamon River flows through the center of Macon County, creating safe havens for birds and other wildlife along its tree-lined corridor. Within Macon County and adjoining counties, there are many parks, conservation areas, and nature preserves.
Trails and greenways are continually expanding and will connect many of these natural areas. Hiking trails and bike path expansions continue to make birding and nature hikes accessible to our entire community.
John James Audubon
"A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children."
