Welcome!

 

Jayhawk Audubon is the chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Lawrence, Douglas County, and surrounding communities in eastern Kansas.

 

Our mission is to provide opportunities for greater understanding and appreciation of birds and other wildlife, to encourage sustainable practices, and to advocate for actions and policies which result in protection and preservation of intact ecosystems.

Put away your feeders for now

Jayhawk Audubon recommends taking down your bird feeders until we know more about what is causing bird deaths in much of the eastern U.S.

We are taking a very cautious approach because we don't know if this bird disease is coming our way. For now, clean your feeders with a 10% bleach solution and put them away until the situation is resolved. We also suggest discontinuing use of bird baths.

Birds can  find plenty of natural food and don’t depend on bird feeders, especially at this time of year. Read more about the issue on National Audubon's website.
