Orange County Audubon Society

Welcome to the site of New York’s Orange County Audubon Society

Advancing the public’s awareness of conservation for the benefit of Birds and all wildlife.


Orange County Audubon Society presentations and meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month, September through June at libraries throughout Orange County.


Our spring 2018 program “Gardening with Native Plants for Birds” will be presented by Master Gardeners Melissa Peterson and Cecelia Lillard.  This program provides insider information and tips about using native plants in our gardens and landscapes that are not only attractive but also help sustain our native and migrating bird populations.

The programs run about an hour and will be followed by a short business meeting for OCAS members who wish to stay.

Our field trips (not hikes), although designed primarily for bird watching, are intended to create interest in flora, fauna, and all natural beauty in Orange County and vicinity. The public is always welcome.

OCAS maintains 5 wildlife refuges, totaling some 300 acres, in Goshen, Warwick, and Montgomery.  These sanctuaries are open to the public during daylight hours for bird watching, and the quiet study of nature, including photography and painting.
