Our community is dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of habitats near and far.

As an active chapter of National Audubon Society, we offer many opportunities for people of all ages to experience birds and learn more about the beautiful natural areas that surround us. We serve primarily the communities of Napa and Solano counties, located north and northeast of the San Francisco Bay. Attending a field trip or program is a great way to learn more about our organization. You need not be a "serious bird-watcher" to be a part of our group! We welcome newcomers and interested birders of all skill levels. As a volunteer organization with no paid staff, we offer many opportunities for volunteers to participate in a variety of projects, large or small.

Beyond bird-watching, the Napa-Solano Audubon Society is a conservation group committed to monitoring local bird populations and preserving local biodiversity in general. Napa and Solano counties are a beautiful and biologically rich area. We have a wide variety of natural habitats including tidal salt and fresh water marshes, vernal pools, grasslands with valley oaks, chaparral foothills, riparian corridors, and a several types of woodlands. Over 50,000 acres are cultivated vineyards. As an organization, we offer educational opportunities for the local community to increase awareness of the importance of these habitats and the birds that depend upon them. Please volunteer or make a monetary donation to help us carry out our citizen science efforts, to support our conservation work, and to provide educational opportunities for families, youth groups and schools.
