Southern Adirondack Audubon Society (SAAS) is a certified local chapter of the National Audubon Society. Our primary goal
 is to protect the environment by preserving natural habitats and promoting environmental education. 
Over 500 strong, our membership is drawn from  Warren, Washington, northern Saratoga and southern Hamilton counties in New York State.


To advance our goal of "Conservation through Education," we sponsor monthly public programs on natural history topics, provide Audubon Adventures nature lessons to homeschooling families in our chapter area and lead natural history field trips.

 
 
In addition, our chapter also:
  • Publishes "The Fledgling" , our quarterly chapter newsletter
  • Participates in the Annual Christmas Bird Count - CBC
  • Participates in Project FeederWatch
  • Maintains and monitors Eastern Bluebird trails in partnership with the New York State Bluebird Society.
  • Partners with the Moreau Lake State Park on conservation projects and clean-up days.
  • Particpates in bird monitoring surveys in the Fort Edward Grasslands Important Bird Area
  • Partners with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation,  the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation, the Lake George Association, and the Lake George Land Conservancy on local conservation projects.
  • Submits comment letters to governmental agencies on important issues such as wind power and hydrofracking
