The Central Westchester Audubon Society is about birds, as its name suggests, but it is also about education: education for our neighbors and community about what birds, animals, rivers and streams, trees and plants mean to the Earth and our own lives and to the future of the Earth we all live on.

We Serve Elmsford, Greenburgh, Harrison, Rye, Rye Brook, Port Chester, Purchase and White Plains

Join us on Saturday, May 12 (rain date May 20) for our Annual Birdathon with leader Susan Fried, CWAS Board member. We will meet at Forest Park in Queens, at the corner of Metropolitan Avenue and Park Lane South at 8 am. After birding Forest Park, we will head over to Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge to picnic lunch and continue birding (bathrooms available here).

All skill levels are encouraged to attend! This is an excellent opportunity to go out with others and learn. While we are raising funds we're also learning, reaching out and giving back. We hope you can make it out!

We strive to bring you programs that help us fulfill our mission to bring you timely, interesting information about the natural environment we are privileged to be a part of.


Beginner Birders

Beginner Birders are a recent addition to our stated focus. We welcome brand new birders as well as those who feel their skills are a bit rusty. We're all about learning from each other and having a good time outside with the birds. A few laughs might even be had!

More information is under the Beginner Birder tab above.
