We Invite You to Join our Chapter

Join South Shore Audubon as a local chapter member. Receive our newsletter, South Shore Skimmer, which includes local outings, environmental issues and initiatives. Membership is $20 per year.

Some great reasons to join include:

  • On our Sunday morning Bird Walks, we enjoy bird life and other wonders of nature in local habitats. Even if you have never experienced birding, our leaders will make the experience fun and educational. Additional field trips, usually on Saturdays, are made to other special sites and natural events.
  • Monthly Programs feature outstanding guest presenters discussing wildlife, ecology and travel. The meetings provide an opportunity to meet others who share your interests and to become more involved in chapter activities.
  • Educational Activities - including programs on conservation and ecology for children and adults in community groups and schools. We give scholarships to local high school and college students to encourage environmental studies. Each summer the chapter gives economically disadvantaged students a week of day camp at the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary in Oyster Bay.
  • Research - SSAS has been compiling a permanent record of the bird populations in our area. Research teams regularly survey local preserves and ponds, and participate in national bird counts. Members tally bird activity in their own backyards for the Backyard Bird Survey.
  • Environmental Action - Members are provided with accurate and up-to-date environmental information and alerted to action and advocacy opportunities.
  • Brookside Preserve, straddling Freeport and Baldwin, is a 21-acre county-owned nature preserve. SSAS manages and helps maintain this freshwater wetland area as an outdoor environmental resource and provides guided tours and trail guides.
  • The chapter's own newsletter, South Shore Skimmer, lists events and programs, keeps you in touch with local conservation activities, reports birding experiences, and helps us live a greener life.
