The Stanislaus Audubon Society was formed in 1973 when Merced & Stanislaus County members voted to separate from the San Joaquin Audubon Society Chapter.


The Stanislaus Audubon Society promotes the enjoyment, understanding, and protection of birds and other wildlife by engaging people of all ages in birding, education, and conservation.

To accomplish this mission we will...

  • Promote scientifically sound conservation strategies for the protection of native ecosystems and demonstrate the value of conservation to the community.

  • Educate our community about the benefits of preserving and enjoying nature, focusing on youth education programs, public outreach, and field trips.

  • Support research into maintaining, restoring, and understanding native ecosystems, particularly those of birds.

  • Collaborate with the National Audubon Society, Audubon-California, Audubon Chapters, and other organizations to accomplish our common goals.
