Protecting NH’s Natural Environment for Wildlife and for People

Come with us and explore NH’s wild places, connect with nature, and help us protect the places we love for today and tomorrow.


Welcome to NH Audubon

We are fortunate to live in a state with abundant birds and other wildlife, and the habitats and ecosystems that support them. Our quality of life is inextricably tied to the wild places that surround us throughout the state. NH Audubon’s programs protect species like Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons, educate youth and adults about conservation, manage 7,500 acres of sanctuary habitat, lead hikes, and go birding. Founded in 1914, NH Audubon is separate and independent from National Audubon, and we rely on donations and membership to enable our important work.
