Welcome to the Va Beach Audubon Website!

 

The Virginia Beach Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. VBAS is an active conservation and environmental organization dedicated to the Audubon cause of saving birds, wildlife, and habitat.

VBAS sponsors monthly programs, field trips, education programs, and support for the Virginia Beach School System. We are also a major contributor to the Virginia Beach Winter Wildlife Festival. The Virginia Beach Audubon Society welcomes volunteers and new members. Members receive the Audubon Magazine. The public is invited to participate in all activities.

The next meeting scheduled for April 13th has been CANCELLED.

These are challenging times with the COVID-19 virus causing havoc everywhere.  Most of our board and our attending membership is in the most vulnerable age group.  Regulations from both the State and Federal leaders continues to change to lock down the population to try to slow down the spreading of this virus.  In all probability the May meeting will also be cancelled based on the Virginia Governors latest timetable.

The  Audubon Student Art Show at Pembroke Mall has been cancelled by the Virginia Beach School System Superintendant.  With schools going virtual for the remainder of the school year then this is a very good decision.

However at the same time the recomendation is to get outside.  We are not cancelling the field trips but must make sure that we are meeting the guidelines of no more than 10 people congregate at one site and you must maintain 6 foot of clearance from each other.  Cancellation will be by the Field Trip leader but I am sure that cancellation will happen due to individuals decideing not to participate.

Here is a calendar of coming events.  As of March 24th none of these events have been cancelled.  However you need to check the websites listed on a ongoing basis to see if they are cancelled.  I am sure that several will.

Upcoming events include:

So please come join us in and share your encounters with our avian friends as well as learn about them from some of the talented people that live in the Hampton Roads area.
