Established in 1952, the North Shore Audubon Society area comprises most of Northern Nassau County. All our meetings and walks are open to the public and all levels of birders are welcome. North Shore Audubon Society is one of seven Audubon Societies on Long Island and also belongs to AudubonNY. National Audubon Society assigns those who live in our area to NSAS. You can also join NSAS separately. To learn more about our history and board of directors click here.
Meetings during COVID are virtual and held on ZOOM. When we are able to resume in person meetings they will be at the Glen Cove Library the fourth Tuesday of October, November, January, February, March, April and May at 7 pm and in September at Garvies Point Museum and Preserve during International Cleanup.
The North Shore Audubon Youtube channel has recordings of our zoom presentations, and clips of birds and wildlife filmed by our members.
