Des Moines Audubon Society

Des Moines Audubon Society was organized in 1923 by a group of folks interested in the birds of the area. Although it is not a chapter of National Audubon, there is an affiliation and the Des Moines group actively participates in the statewide coalition Iowa Audubon.

Be sure to download the Makoke Trail birding guide for help in finding the best places to bird in central Iowa. Also check out our Birding By Month feature for more ideas of what species may be found at various times of the year. You may also find our site map of some value for specific directions.
