The Grand Lake Audubon Society in Grove, OK, is a Chapter of the National Audubon Society. Our goals of the Grand Lake Audubon are:
- To promote the conservation of wildlife & natural environments.
- To encourage interest in the study of nature.
- To provide the opportunity for study and observation of birds and other wildlife.
- To contribute to research in the fields of conservation and ornithology by monetary support and active participation.
- To educate the public on the need to protect wild birds and animals, trees and plants, soil, air and water, and to promote a better understanding of these natural resources.
Meetings are held at Grace Presbyterian Church, 4th & Main St., Grove, on the second Tuesday of each month, September through May, at 7 p.m. Carpool meeting location for most field trips is the Grove WalMart parking lot behind Rib Crib unless otherwise specified. We leave on time, so don't be late. All meetings and field trips are free and open to the public.
Our Grand Lake chapter sponsors Audubon Adventures in schools and local youth organizations. This National Audubon educational program stresses learning about animals and their habitats, ecology and other environmental needs. It calls upon the uses of reading, language arts, math and art in this learning process. Monthly door drawings and the fall fund raiser help fund this project.
