Maricopa Audubon Society Birds in Maricopa County

Birding! The chapter's very active membership sponsors numerous field trips throughout the year, mostly to sites near the Phoenix metropolitan area, but also to other parts of Arizona and (occasionally) out of state.

Although southeast Arizona is the most well-known region of the state for birds, many of the same species are found in the Phoenix area. In recent years, the area has had sightings of Roseate Spoonbill, Brown Thrasher and other unusual species.

Regular monthly meetings (September thru May) are held at 7:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month. Meetings are held at Dorrence Hall or Webster Auditorium at the Desert Botanical Garden, except May. Please check out program schedule for current location.

The Desert Botanical Garden is located at 1201 North Galvin Parkway , Phoenix , Arizona . This is approximately ¼ mile north of the Phoenix Zoo. Dorrance Hall is located southeast of the main parking lot. Webster Auditorium is in the southeast section of the garden. There is limited parking nearby. Contact for directions to parking.

The chapter also is active in habitat conservation for birds and other wildlife, with emphasis on riparian habitat, old-growth forest, and habitat used by endangered species.

The chapter's education committee sets up programs for local schools, and sponsors scholarships.
