Strawberry Plains Audubon Center is one of Mississippiís finest natural and historic treasures.  With a love of nature and profound foresight, Ruth Finley and Margaret Finley Shackelford entrusted their home and property to The National Audubon Society.  Ruth and Margaretís vision of protecting wildlife and habitat from an encroaching and ever-growing urban area has become our mission.  We foster that mission by restoring and conserving the 2500-acres of bottomland hardwoods, wetlands and native grasslands at SPAC.  In the community, we work with landowners to develop habitat management plans that will help future generations enjoy the economic and social benefits that clean water and a natural environment provide.  SPAC is committed to providing experiential and place-based education to students of all ages.

Our Vision:  In a watershed facing rapid development, future generations will inherit sufficient amounts of clean water, native wildlife populations and a legacy of stewardship focused on the importance of nature.
