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




We're hoping to hear from you!

We will be having a meeting open to our members and interested members of the community on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. We will be discussing what comes next for CWAS and how you'd like to see us be present in the community.

Rye Presbyterian Church, 7pm - 8:30pm.

Parking located in the back and around the driveway of the church. We will be serving home made desserts and cider.


Our Programs

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. This year will be co-sponsoring programs with a variety of partners including the Bird Homestead Meeting House in Rye and Rye Nature Center. We hope you'll join us!


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.

We're doing it again! We've had such a great time with this that we're heading out to see even more! We hope you'll join us!
