Centennial Campaign


100 Years of Connecting People to Birds and Nature

We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love of this Earth... and to tell our stories.

On March 24, 1916, over 500 people filled the dining room of the Fort Pitt Hotel to help create Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania.

For the past 100 years, ASWP has been connecting the people of southwestern Pennsylvania to birds and nature through our programs, projects, and places.

As we celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are launching an ambitious, $7 million campaign to fund new trails, buildings, and other enhancements at our three public sites—Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, Succop Nature Park, and Todd Nature Reserve. We are also introducing a suite of regional Initiatives that bring new conservation and education programs into our homes, schools, parks, and communities.

Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania's Centennial Campaign will enable us to engage the public as never before and create a new wave of conservation and environmental commitment that will endure for generations.

With your help, we look forward to continuing our work for another 100 years.
Thank you for supporting this important campaign.

With appreciation,
