"The mission of the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society (ORAS) is to promote the preservation and restoration of wildlife habitat through environmental activism and community education."

The Oconee Rivers Audubon Society is a group of people brought together by a love of birds and nature. Our chapter consists of over 350 members representing a diversity of ages and birding skills. We strive to promote conservation and provide a voice for environmental issues. We also provide a forum for the exchange of information via monthly newsletters and meetings. Oconee Rivers Audubon organizes several local conservation projects each year, such as putting up nest boxes for various species. We also give monthly public presentations on subjects related to birds, nature, and conservation.  Please check our news and events pages to learn about upcoming activities.
