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,501c3 non-profit organization founded as a chapter of the National Audubon A historic view of the fields at Honey Hollow Society in 1969. BCAS is a steward of the Honey Hollow Watershed, a National Historic Landmark - the first upland watershed in agricultural use and multiple private ownership to demonstrate that cooperative local action, supported by Federal assistance, is a practical method of achieving national goals in water, soil science, wildllife conservation and flood prevention. Honey Holow was designated as a registered National Historic Landmark in August 1969. We owe these men a debt of gratitude for what they have done.  "....not only for the soil they protected, but also for showing is that it can be done as they have done it. In spite of many handicaps and with only limited help they have put a big program into effect all over their watershed." Dr Hugh Bennett, Soil Conservation Service in 1942

Bucks County Audubon Society manages Honey Hollow for environmental education, stewardship, and maintains the rich heritage of the region through interpretive displays at the Environmental Education Center.  It is open to school and community groups for educational programs throughout the year. 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.
