Support Indiana’s Birds: Become a Member

Founded in 1898, Indiana Audubon is the state’s oldest conservation organization and operates independently from the National Audubon Society. By joining us, you directly support our mission to engage communities in the enjoyment of birds in their habitats, through conservation, education, and research. Your membership helps sustain our work and ensures that Indiana’s avian wonders continue to thrive.

Publication Options

  • Individual & Family Memberships: Members at these levels receive electronic access to both The Cardinal and Indiana Audubon Quarterly (IAQ). The IAQ requires member login for access, while The Cardinal does not.
  • Contributing & Cardinal Club Memberships: Members at these levels can choose to receive printed copies of both The Cardinal and IAQ, or select print copies for just one of the publications.
  • Life Memberships: Life members can choose between print or electronic formats for either publication.

You can adjust your publication preferences anytime by emailing us at [email protected].

Birds of the World

As a member of Indiana Audubon, you receive complimentary access to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Birds of the World (BOW) website, a $49 annual subscription included with your membership at no additional cost.

Please note that new members gain access to BOW on a quarterly basis (March, June, September, and December). If you need temporary access before your quarterly enrollment, simply email us.
