Amos Butler Audubon Society was first established in 1938 as the Amos W. Butler District of the Indiana Audubon Society. In 1952 the name was changed in conjunction with the Board's decision to officially became a grassroots chapter of the the National Audubon Society. If you are wondering who Amos W. Butler was, he was a man widely considered to be Indiana's greatest naturalist. Among his many accomplishments, in 1890 Amos Butler published The Birds of Indiana, the first book of its kind for the state.
The mission of Amos Butler Audubon Society is "To promote the enjoyment and stewardship of birds of Central Indiana". We do this by:
Hosting monthly educational meetings with presentations on a wide variety of topics
Offering field trips throughout the state and beyond
