Protecting our Precious Environment through Education, Conservation and Preservation. 

As a chapter of the National Audubon Society, we dedicate ourselves to preserve and maintain those lands and waters that have been entrusted to our stewardship, and to inform and educate the public on issues involving birds, wildlife, and the environment.  

PHAS provides a schedule of programs, including bird walks, educational programs, field trips, and guest lectures.  These programs are intended to appeal to a wide range of interests and ability levels.
