The Anchorage Audubon Society is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Southcentral Alaskan birds, wildlife, and habitats, for the benefit and enjoyment of current and future generations. We lead field trips, provide monthly natural history presentations, and offer educational programs for adults and children. All outings, field trips, and programs are open to the public, and all levels of birders and non-birders are welcome. Our website has more information.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Contributions received through Pick.Click.Give. are use to support our educational programs. Together with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, each summer we have established a loon cam on Conner’s Lake. The cam allows anyone with a computer to view the family life of a pair of loons who spend the summer on the lake. The highlight of the summer is the hatching of the chicks and then watching them grow and mature. In addition to the loon cam we have developed a tri-fold flyer that shows all of the common winter birds of the Anchorage area. This is especially helpful to adults, as well as children, visitors, beginners, or anyone who might be interested in birding in the Anchorage area. AAS has contributed to the development of an updated checklist of the birds of Anchorage, Alaska along with Audubon Alaska We also promote the conservation of natural habitats and corridors for birds and other wildlife by reviewing and testifying on purposed draft plans and laws. Anchorage Audubon Society volunteers help support the Department of Fish and Game and Alaska Audubon in their programs to get people into the outdoors were they will hopefully gain a greater respect for the natural environment in which we live and work.
