The Dubuque Bird Club was organized on March 11, 1929.  The president was Mrs. R. W. Johnson, and there were 14 charter members who met at her house.  

The Dubuque Bird Club became the Dubuque Audubon Society on January 11, 1973, becoming a charter member of the National Audubon Society.


The society accepts donations and has fundraising opportunities to support its goals and mission.
