124th Annual Christmas Bird Count
Saturday, December 30th
Since 1900 the Audubon Society has annually conducted its Christmas Bird Count. This year will be the 124th and we hope that you will be involved.
We have officially chosen the date of Saturday, December 30th to conduct our count. Our geographical region is Southern Orange County, which is then divided into smaller circles that we will be assigning to groups to do their count.
You can sign up by yourself or as a group. It is a lot of fun and a great way to get out of the house this winter, while at the same time providing invaluable research data that can help us keep track of population trends.

BECOME A MEMBER
Thank you for your continued support of OCAS, your local Audubon Chapter. We appreciate each donation and membership, as well as your love of birds and bird habitat.
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. Many of these sanctuaries are open to the public during daylight hours for bird watching and the quiet study of nature, including photography and painting.
