Orange County Audubon Society Banner



OCAS is a bird and wildlife conservation organization. We steward 5 bird and wildlife sanctuaries in Orange County, NY. Most are open to the public with walking paths and/or a viewing stand accessible to visit for the quiet enjoyment and study of nature. We curate monthly programs/presentations throughout the county and birding field trips each season. We have developed presentations about bird identification and gardening with native plants for birds that organizations or schools can book for for their members. In the summer of 2018 we began an internship program, and this year, for the first time, we will have a booth at the Warwick Applefest on October 14, 2018.


While our primary focus is birds and bird habitat, and our chapter fosters the appreciation and conservation of all aspects of the environment. In 1970, a group of environmentalists and birders in Orange County, NY started the Orange County Audubon Society (OCAS). We are a Member Chapter of the National Audubon Society. Our 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization status means your membership and other donations are tax deductible.
