    In addition to becoming a member of the Santa Fe Audubon Society, everyone is encouraged to become a member of the National Audubon Society.

    National Audubon Society membership is a three part membership. Once paid, you are a member at the national and state levels as well as a full member at the local level. Your local chapter affiliation is decided by assigned zip code from the National Audubon Society. For Santa Fe Audubon Society area zip codes, see map or list. The National Audubon Society sends Santa Fe Audubon a very small portion of each person’s annual dues coming from those zip codes.

    In addition to this baseline funding, the national and state organizations also provide a wide array of support services, information and opportunities to participate on a higher level. For complete information see the national site and state site.

    Paid up members of the National Audubon Society receive the Audubon magazine, bi-monthly from national and the Florida Naturalist from the state three times a year. Santa Fe Audubon currently sends out mailings with program and scheduling information to all members. You can join National Audubon Society online here. Be sure to designate E52 (Santa Fe Audubon) as the Chapter Code in the online form.

    A copy of the official registration and financial information may be obtained from the Division of Consumer Services by calling toll-free within the state. Registration does not imply endorsement, approval or recommendation by the state. For more information dial 1-800-HELP-FLA(435-7352) or go to www.FloridaConsumerHelp.com.
