During their October 20, 2022 Annual Meeting, members enthusiastically approved Nature Forward as the new name of the former Audubon Naturalist Society.

Our 125-year-old organization remains committed to our mission to inspire people across our region to appreciate, understand and protect their natural environment. Our vision, to create a larger and more diverse community of people who treasure the natural world and work to preserve it, remains the same.

The new name results from a process that started more than a decade ago when we adopted our mission and vision. The name change is the most recent step in living up to our ideals of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility and reflects our belief in Nature for All in the DC region.
