Audubon has an established role in history as one of the oldest settlements in North America. We’re on the Trail of Tears, and became one of the first properties put in trust. We want to expand our unique role in the future to more citizens, and enlist your help in educating all generations about preserving our native wildlife. That was our founder, Robert Sparks Walker’s vision for Audubon Acres — to preserve this unique property for all of posterity to enjoy, learn from, and protect.
Join us March 23 at Little Owl Music & Arts Festival 11-6 p.m. Audubon Acres East Brainerd at 900 North Sanctuary Road in Chattanooga.
