Welcome to Maricopa Audubon Society (MAS), a chapter of the National Audubon Society in the Phoenix metropolitan area with 2,500 members.
Though southeast Arizona is the most well-known Arizona region for birds, many of the same species are found in the Phoenix area. In recent years, we have sighted the Roseate Spoonbill, Brown Thrasher and other unusual species.
Our Mission Statement:
Maricopa Audubon Society is an
organization of volunteers dedicated to the
enjoyment of birds and other wildlife with a primary
focus on the protection and restoration of the
habitat of the Southwest through fellowship,
education, and community involvement.
New Field Trips added!
Please see Field Trips page for more details on three trips led by Kathe Anderson
and a trip to Q Ranch in August with Dr. Pierre DeViche and Ken Furtado.
