To the Ogeechee Audubon Society, a local chapter of the National Audubon Society.

Our Mission

Ogeechee Audubon's mission is to educate adults and children about birds, wildlife and the environment. We provide opportunities to enjoy the world around us, and advocate for responsible public policy and legislation for the conservation of our natural resources.


About Us

Ogeechee Audubon is a chapter of the National Audubon Society (NAS). Members of National Audubon who live in general proximity to Savannah GA are automatically assigned to our chapter and receive our bi-monthly newsletter, The Marshlander. We also offer Chapter Memberships to those who are not members of National Audubon as well as to NAS members who wish to provide additional support to their local chapter. A Chapter Membership application can be found on the second page of our newsletter. Ogeechee Audubon invites the public to attend its meetings, which are held at First Presbyterian Church on Washington Avenue at 7:00PM on the third Tuesday of February, April, June, September, October and December. Each meeting features a guest speaker addressing some aspect of birding or nature, usually with an accompanying slide show. There is no admission fee to attend a meeting.


Join Us

We conduct several birding field trips each month to natural areas in and around Savannah. These trips are open to the public and free of charge. Each trip is led by an expert birder or naturalist who can help beginners to find and identify birds and other wildlife. They are an excellent resource for learning more about our natural environment.
