The purpose and objectives of this Society shall be to promote the enjoyment, understanding and preservation of birds, other wildlife and habitat through birding, education, advocacy and fellowship, while engaging in any such educational, scientific, investigative and charitable pursuits as may be part of the stated purposes of the National Audubon Society, of which this Society shall function as a Chapter.
Richmond Audubon Society (RAS) was established in 1973, and is a chapter of the National Audubon Society (NAS). RAS is dedicated to the observation and conservation of birds and other wildlife. Our members participate in local conservation efforts, habitat restoration, and monitoring of applicable legislation. We have over 1,400 members throughout Central Virginia, made up of a diverse group of people from various backgrounds, interests and birding experience levels.
RAS is active in citizen science projects, education, and outreach to citizens from kids to seniors about birds, habitat and nature. RAS is also active in sharing information on environmental legislative issues and working to address global warming and protection of endangered species.
