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.
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
- 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.
