Most members belong to one of the 14 local Audubon chapters in Missouri. These chapters send representatives to the Missouri Audubon Council which sets state Audubon policy and legislative positions. There is a state affiliate, the Audubon Society of Missouri, which is the premiere bird watching organization in the state. Supported by 550,000 members in 518 chapters throughout North America, the mission of the National Audubon Society is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and other wildlife for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. Founded in 1905, the National Audubon Society is named for John James Audubon (1785-1851), famed ornithologist, explorer, and wildlife artist.
