Travis Audubon promotes the enjoyment, understanding, and conservation of native birds and their habitats. Travis Audubon owns and manages three wildlife sanctuaries. We protect critical habitat for the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler, which breeds only in Central Texas, at our 715-acre Baker Sanctuary. Chaetura Canyon Sanctuary is home to more than 30 nesting avian species and is world renowned for research and conservation of Chimney Swifts. Blair Woods is a 10-acre 'living lab' in East Austin that is undergoing an intensive restoration efforts. Travis Audubon continues to spearhead conservation programs locally and support them abroad.
Travis Audubon’s Education Committee is dedicated to providing high-quality educational opportunities geared toward environmental conservation, bird identification, and bird-friendly habitat awareness for all ages. We focus on topics related to birds but also offer other nature topics as appropriate, and suggestions for new courses are welcomed. Our classes are led by expert instructors with significant, relevant experience to the topics. We charge tuition (with a discount for Travis Audubon members) to help cover our expenses in offering the classes. Many of the classes fill up early, so if you are interested, register on-line and pay the fee as soon as possible. If the class is full there is an option to be put on the waiting list, but the waiting list is only for the current year. Please note that by attending any of these classes, you agree to our Travis Audubon Event policies and Liability Waiver.
