Seven Ponds Nature Center is a partner with the Michigan Audubon Society, a conservation, education, and research organization which has served Michigan for over one hundred years. Five chapters of the Michigan Audubon Society (Genesee, Grosse Pointe, Lapeer, Macomb, and Oakland) are in turn supporting chapters of the nature center. In addition, the Detroit Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, also supports Seven Ponds. All of these organizations have representatives on our Board of Directors, assisting with governance and fundraising. Most of these groups offer programs related to birds and conservation, publish their own newsletter or website, and serve as a resource related to birds in their respective communities.
