Strawberry Plains Audubon Center is one of Mississippi’s finest natural and historic treasures. With a love of nature and profound foresight, two sisters, Ruth Finley and Margaret Finley Shackelford, entrusted their home and property to The National Audubon Society. Ruth and Margaret’s vision of protecting wildlife and their habitat from an encroaching and ever-growing urban area has directed our work for over a decade.

We continue their vision by restoring and conserving the 3,000 acres of hardwood forests, wetlands and native grasslands managed by Strawberry Plains. 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. Strawberry Plains is committed to providing experiential and place-based education to students of all ages.
