Advancing the public’s awareness of conservation for the benefit of Birds and all wildlife.
Welcome to the Orange County Audubon Society.
Started in 1970 by a group of environmentalist/ birders, we were incorporated in May of 1974 under New York State law. We focus primarily on birds and bird habitat but also foster an appreciation for all aspects of the environment.

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.
