” Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Bergen County Audubon Society enjoys connecting people with birds and nature. Birding is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, you’ll learn to appreciate birds and nature while connecting with new people that share similar interests. Studies have shown that nature provides many health benefits, both physical and mental. This bodes true for young and old alike. All of our field trips, events and programs are free and everyone is invited to join us, no prior birding experience needed.
