The Rogue Valley Audubon Society (RVAS) is the leading voice for bird conservation in our area. We have ongoing environmental education programs active in local schools and environmental organizations, several local and regional conservation issues are being addressed, and a field trip program that includes a variety of habitats in Jackson and adjoining counties.
We fund local bird research projects and through the Bob Black Fund engage in projects to encourage youths to become birders and to recruit new members to RVAS. Your local-only membership or basic support of $20/year and additional donations fund our efforts.
Rogue Valley Audubon Society membership includes: • The Chat — nine issues of our newsletter per year. • Seven educational and social program meetings per year. • Regional field trips and local bird walks. • Educational programs for students and adults. • Monitoring of regional conservation issues and working with local wildlife managers to improve access to bird habitats. • Bird counts for eBird and national species censes, such as the Birdathon and Christmas Bird Count • Support for local research projects If you join the National Audubon Society you will be automatically enrolled as a member of Rogue Valley Audubon Society, and receive the benefits listed above.
