Our Mission

Bucks County Audubon Society's mission is: "To educate the people of the greater Bucks County region about our natural world with an emphasis on energy and resource conservation, including protection of birds and other wildlife and their habitats."

Donate NowYour gift makes possible the many outstanding environmental education programs offered to the community, enabling people of all ages to experience nature first-hand and learn to live in harmony with the natural world.

The Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS) is a non-profit organization founded as a chapter of the National Audubon Society in 1969. BCAS manages Honey Hollow Watershed as a model of cooperative conservation efforts by farmers. Honey Hollow Watershed is the first small upland watershed in agricultural use and multiple private ownership to demonstrate that cooperative local action, supported by Federal technical assistance, is a practical method of achieving national goals in soil, water and wildlife conservation, and flood prevention.  As such, it has served as a prototype for thousands of similar small watersheds throughout the nation." - National Historic Landmark Statement of Significance (on August 4, 1969).


Donations to BCAS go to work immediately in our region.  Since its inception, the organization has been dedicated to conserving wildlife, promoting awareness of environmental problems, educating the community about the interdependence of humans and their world, and furthering the wise use of land, air, and water.  Our trails are open every day for your responsible enjoyment.
