    Bergen County Audubon Society – Founded in 1941

Chapter of National Audubon Society; member of The Nature Program Cooperative

As members of Bergen County Audubon Society, we share a love of birds and a concern for the environment. Our mission is to promote and protect wildlife in its natural habitat by providing opportunities for observation and conservation.

Spring Count Fundraiser

The Spring Count Fundraiser is based on the total number of bird species seen by our members on May 9, 2015 We typically find around 100-125 species. You may pledge “X” amount per species and your pledge will then be multiplied by the total number of species seen on that day, or you can pledge a fixed amount. Please consider using a “Matching Grant” from your employer if it is available to you. The pledge is tax deductible. Monies raised are used to support NJ conservation initiatives and to fund environmental education through our Audubon Adventures-a classroom based curriculum that is used in our local schools. Last year your dollars helped to reach over 2000 students in classrooms throughout the County.
