Change in Compass Delivery

One of Chicago Audubon Society’s (CAS) larger expenditures has been printing and mailing the bi-monthly Compass newsletter. In addition to the monetary cost, CAS is concerned about the cost to the environment of paper and the printing process. For those reasons, we no longer print and mail a hard copy of our newsletter. Instead, it will be delivered as a pdf via email to members of the Chicago Audubon Society Chapter for whom we have email addresses.

 If you did not receive your copy of the most recent issue of the Compass, March-April 2018, it's because we don't have your email address. To receive future issues, please send your email address to [email protected]. And remember, as always, current and back issues of the Compass are available on this website, under the Newsletters tab.

Thank you for your continued support, and Good Birding to all!

Support legislation that protects the pollinators!

Chicago Audubon stands with the American Bird Conservancy

in supporting legislation that protects the pollinators. 

Tell Congress it’s time to get serious about protecting birds, bees, and other wildlife by passing the Saving America’s Pollinators Act (H.R. 3040) to restrict toxic neonicotinoid pesticides. 

Neonicotinoids have become the most-used insecticides in the nation. They are found in the foods we eat, the pest-control sprays we use in our gardens, and the flea-control products we put on our pets. Yet, neonicotinoids are lethal to the birds, bees, butterflies and other organisms we rely on to pollinate our crops and control our pests.

Please act now: Urge your Representative to co-sponsor the

Saving America’s Pollinators Act

Tell your senators to support a companion bill in the Senate.
