For the Birds
Since 1926, our mission has been to preserve, protect, and educate our community about native birds and their ecosystems in Santa Clara County, California. We offer many opportunities for you to volunteer and get involved. Many of our popular kids' programs meet public school science standards. Peruse our extensive calendars for field trips, classes, and events that suit your interests. Please become a supporting member or donate to help continue our many programs.
