The Golden Gate Audubon Society engages people to experience the wonder of birds, and translate that wonder into action, and protect native bird populations and their habitats.

Description:
Our conservation program includes advocacy and on-the-ground projects to preserve and restore habitat, with a significant emphasis on engaging volunteers and local communities in conservation efforts. Additionally, we provide outstanding educational programs to adults, youth, and families that awaken and inspire a culture of conservation about birds and wildlife habitat in the East Bay and San Francisco.

History:
Golden Gate Audubon has been a leader in the field of bird and wildlife habitat conservation in the East Bay and San Francisco since 1917.

Number of students served: Over 700 students annually in grades three through six. Over 15,000 students and family members since 1999.
