Have you ever wondered why some birds are more colorful than others? Why is our planet green? How do living things produce and exhibit different colors? And why would a bird or any animal want to stand out anyway? Please join us for an informative program about color in nature, presented by Dr. Walter Jahn.

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.
