Richmond Audubon Society (RAS) is a chapter of the National Audubon Society (NAS) and is dedicated to the observation and conservation of birds and other wildlife. Our members support local conservation efforts, habitat restoration, and monitor legislation. Our members also enjoy many activities, including field trips and bird counts, game nights, and a book club. We are a diverse group of people from various backgrounds, interests and birding experience levels.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the National Audubon Society supports science, education, advocacy, and on-the-ground action for birds and the places and resources they need.
Go to the National Audubon Society Membership page to make a minimum donation of $20 (or $5 monthly). When you join the NAS by donating you will be assigned to a local Audubon group based on your zip code, however if you prefer to be assigned to RAS, enter code X53 when you join.
For a one-year membership, click on "Just this once." There are several donation amounts listed, but the minimum contribution for a year is $20.00. If you wish to donate that, you will need to type that amount in the empty box.
You can avoid renewal notices and lapsed memberships by becoming a Sustaining member. This means you will continue to be a member without having to renew. To become a sustaining member, choose to contribute “Every month" or "Once a year.” Your credit card will be charged either monthly or yearly indefinitely, until you cancel or your card expires. If you choose every month the minimum donation is $5.00 a month. If you choose once a year the minimum donation is $20.00 a year. You will have to type those amounts in.
An Audubon membership makes a great birthday or holiday gift for the bird enthusiast in your life. Go to the NAS Gift Membership page and your family member or friend will soon be able to enjoy all the benefits of being an Audubon member for a full year.
Members receive both National Audubon and Richmond Audubon benefits:
