About Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow
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 wildife and their habitats.

The Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS) is a private, non-profit organization founded as a chapter of the National AudubonPre-school explorers enjoy a summer day at Bucks County Audubon Society Society in 1969. BCAS is a steward of the Honey Hollow Watershed, a National Historic Landmark - the only agriculturally based National Historic Landmark in the United States. Due to the vision of a cadre of farmers working to improve soil conservation and modern farming methods with the Soil Conservation Service, the entire watershed of the Honey Hollow Creek was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1969.

The Center is open to school and community groups for educational programs throughout the year. Educational programs have been conducted here for over 60 years.  Our natural trails are open to the public free of charge every day from dawn to dusk for hiking, birdwatching or just enjoying. Donations are welcome to defray the cost of trail maintenance.

The land is owned jointly by the Bucks County Audubon Society, Heritage Conservancy and the Crooks family.

Bucks County Audubon Society is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that relies on memberships; bequests and individual donors; public and private agency grants; corporate & business donations; matching gifts, in-kind materials & services donations; BCAS special events, and field trip income. All contributions are tax deductible.




Alan Brady was a knowledgeable life long birder who taught everyone aorund him to love and respect birds.The Alan Brady Youth Birding Series

Bucks County Audubon Society is pleased to sponsor The Alan Brady Youth Birding Series. The Legacy Fund was established in March 2014 to pay tribute to Alan Brady of Wycombe, PA: birder, father, friend, and businessman.  The goal of the Series is to promote involvement by young people in birding and ornithology. In 2014, BCAS sponsored a young and rising birder to attend Hog Island Camp in Maine. 

In the spring of 2014, the Brady family worked with stone mason, Ben Purscell to build and install a beautifully engraved stone bench. Walk the trails and enjoy some quiet time sitting and listening to the birds around you.
