I am sure you are now going to get more help than you want.

Each local Audubon Chapter is a separate 501c3 non-profit, and most are 
affiliated with National Audubon Society.  Audubon Missouri is a State 
office of National Audubon Society, and not a separate non-profit 
organization. When you join the local chapter you become a member of the 
National Audubon Society as well, or if you join directly with the National 
Audubon Society your name is assigned, based on your zip code, to a local 
chapter.  In some cases local chapters have chosen to provide local chapter 
membership only without becoming a National Audubon Society member.

Audubon Society of Missouri, as the Missouri State's ornithologist 
organization is a stand alone 501c3 organization with it's own membership 
costs and benefits.

A significant number of active birders belong to both organizations, but 
neither group requires you to join to participate in activities, but you 
will not receive full benefits, such a newsletters, and magazines; etc. 
Birding field trips, and organizational meetings are open to all, and have 
always welcomed everyone to participate.  There is a tremendous opportunity 
to enjoy great social camaraderie, and gain new knowledge of the avian 
community from super birder experts by participating with all birding 
organizations.
