Certificate Vignette George Bird Grinnell, editor of Forest and Stream, was one of the first to speak up against the mindless slaughter of animals. In 1886 he encouraged his readers to join him in forming the country's first bird preservation organization, the Audubon Society. The society was named after the American naturalist and wildlife painter John James Audubon, who lived from 1785 to 1851. This is an original certificate from this organization. The certificate has printed on it " The Audubon Society - For the protection of American Birds - Founded by Forest and Stream"
