At Audubon, we believe that where birds thrive people prosper. Nowhere is this more evident than in Louisiana.

Louisiana’s coastal habitats, bottomland hardwoods, and rich agricultural lands make the state one of the richest in the nation in terms of natural resources. The magnificent Mississippi River Delta ecosystem in Louisiana supports 100 million migratory, nesting and wintering birds. Birds are the bellwethers of ecosystem health; if birds are healthy, our lands are healthy.

Integrating science, education and policy, Audubon Louisiana's mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.

With their help, and generous donations of supplies, we were able to deploy 15 nest boxes around the park. We can't wait for the beautiful sight of yellow feathers in these nest boxes this spring!
