Thank you for helping to protect North Carolina's birds, wildlife, and their habitat!
The Pearson Society is named after the founder of Audubon, Thomas Gilbert Pearson. Heartsick at the devastating losses among birds, this young North Carolina biology professor had a vision for a conservation organization that would become a model for protecting birds, other wildlife and the habitats they depend on. In 1902, the charismatic 28-year-old created the Audubon Society of North Carolina that later became the National Audubon Society.
Audubon North Carolina's T. Gilbert Pearson Society members are among our most generous supporters, making an annual gift of $1,000 or more. Gifts of stock are acceptable as well as donations of $85/month for one year made through our Cardinal Club.
Benefits of membership include recognition as a Pearson Society member in national and state annual reports, invitations to an exclusive Pearson Society weekend, a signature gift and subscriptions to the award winning Audubon magazine and the Audubon North Carolina state newsletter.
