The mission of Green-Rock Audubon Society, Inc. is to restore, preserve, and protect the environment for us and future generations through education, activism, and conservancy.
Green-Rock Audubon Society, Inc. was incorporated in 1991 as a Section 501 C (3) non-profit corporation and is a local chapter of the National Audubon Society. Between 2000 and 2004 we acquired a conservation easement and 250 acres of land so we are a land trust. In 2007 we began aggressively restoring our property.

International Migratory Bird Day and Birdfest in Green County
The Green Rock Audubon Society and the Monroe Public Library collaborated to offer an event to celebrate birds and the certification of the city of Monroe as a Bird City. The event at Clarno Forestry Center included birding walks in the woods, displays and crafts.
In spite of rain, wind and chilly temperatures families, senior citizens and children attended the event. A special display explained the Bird City program which is unique to the state of Wisconsin; it emphasizes urban policies and practices that are friendly to birds.
Many of the attendees went home with a bluebird house built by the "Bluebird Man" Gordon Olson of Argyle. He has made over 6,000 bluebird houses built mostly from donated and recycled wood. Gordon Olson, Kathy Dreikosen the Green Co. Coordinator of Bluebird Restoration of WI and Chad Mathys of barninthesticks.com provided information on a variety of birding topics.
New effort is for the birds!
