Background Statement

Aiken Audubon Society, named for naturalist Charles Aiken (1850-1936), began in April 1950 as the Aiken Ornithological Society. This Society mainly studied birds and their habitats, and wrote papers which are now housed in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Aiken Ornithological Society became a chapter of the National Audubon Society over 50 years ago.

Aiken Audubon supports the local birding and ornithological community through grants, community initiatives and engagement, and monthly meetings with educational presentations on topics related to the science, conservation, and study of birds. In 2023, Aiken used over 60% of its budget to fund grants related to the conservation and study of birds in the Pikes Peak Region.
