About Us

“Promoting Birding and Conservation as Community Educators, Volunteers,
and Stewards”


The Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society promotes birding, conservation of habitat and biological diversity on the Olympic Peninsula through educational and conservation efforts. We are a local chapter of the National Audubon Society and a partner supporting the mission of the Dungeness River Audubon Center.

We live in a unique area. Bounded by the Olympic Mountains and Pacific Ocean/Strait of Juan de Fuca, we are blessed with a rich birding environment. The climate ranges from rain forest to semiarid. Plus, the peninsula is on the path for many migratory birds.

OPAS engages this environment with many events throughout the year including birder activities, classes & workshops, school programs and public celebrations, such as the Olympic BirdFest. Event details can be viewed on the Events Calendar. Many members are also involved with conservation issues.

OPAS is a partner with the Dungeness River Audubon Center, along with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and the National Audubon Society.

General membership meetings are open to the public and normally held the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm (except not in December, July or August) that include local and regional speakers. On our Events page, you will see information about speakers on specific dates as the information becomes available These meetings are usually held at the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
