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.

Stateline Community Foundation supports Audubon habitat restoration
The mission of Green Rock Audubon Society (G-RAS) includes maintaining and restoring habitat for native birds in Green and Rock Counties. Through the Stateline Community Foundation, the Gibbs Foundation has once again provided funds to support that effort. This year's amount was $4184, which will help to purchase materials to combat invasive species on the properties that are owned by G-RAS. For example, the land management team uses propane powered weed torches to burn garlic mustard, and herbicide to eliminate woody invasives such as buckthorn.
For more information about G-RAS habitat efforts, contact Victor Illichmann at 608-882-5893. For more information about the Stateline Community Foundation, contact Tara Tinder at
