    The Arkansas Audubon Society was founded in 1955 at Petit Jean State Park. Objectives of the Society are (1) to foster a greater knowledge of the natural history of Arkansas through observation, investigation, education and publication, and (2) to be a potent force in the conservation of all of the natural resources of Arkansas.


    The Society is not affiliated with the National Audubon Society; individuals or families must specifically join the Arkansas Audubon Society to be members. The Society publishes and distributes a newsletter to members in March, June, September and December of each year. Membership classes range from student to individual or family on up to life or patron memberships.


    The Curator of the Society keeps the official list of Arkansas bird records. In cooperation with the Arkansas Bird Records Committee, the Curator oversees the publishing of field lists and maintains records of bird sightings, including a card file of reports, documentation of rarities and photographic evidence. The Curator also regularly publishes notable reports in the newsletter.
