Benzie Audubon Club

Welcome to the Benzie Audubon Club Website!


Our major objectives are promoting an appreciation for and a better understanding of the plants and animals of northern Michigan, preserving our natural environment, and preventing any activities that may pose a threat to our natural ecology.

To meet our mission we offer educational programs and seasonal field trips and provide members with the Meadowlark newsletter.

The Benzie Audubon Club is a tax-exempt charitable organization and a chapter of the Michigan Audubon Society. All of our meetings and field trips are open to the public without charge. Meetings are usually held the first Thursday of each odd month (January, March, etc.) at the Tribal Outpost at 7282 Hoadley Road in Benzonia (see map). Field trips are taken throughout the year.
