Beyond Faville Grove and Goose Pond Sanctuaries, Madison Audubon has helped to protect and restore numerous local landscapes.
A tradition of Conservation
Since it's start as a bird club in 1935, Madison Audubon members have always seen land preservation as a vital part of bird conservation. Over the years, Madison Audubon and its volunteers have been integral in preserving more than 3,000 acres at multiple project sites.

Prairie Partners intern program
Each summer, Madison Audubon Society teams up with five other local conservation groups to fund internship opportunities in restoration ecology for five students. Interns work in small groups at sites within 30 miles of Madison.
Together with the Friends of Pheasant Branch, UW Arboretum, Friends of Lakeshore Nature Preserve, Natural Heritage Land Trust, and the Friends of Pope Farm Conservancy, this highly successful program provides an outstanding opportunity for students interested in restoration ecology to learn while they work.
