Welcome to Our Chapter!

The Snake River Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society and serves members in the Upper Snake River Valley of Eastern Idaho.  Please join us for our Monthly Meetings, which are held at the Idaho Falls Public Library on the third Thursday of the month at 7:15 p.m. from September through April (except December).  Newsletters are published monthly except for July, August, and December.  During summer months, and throughout the year, we offer a variety of bird walks, field trips, and camping trips. 

This month's program

No program in May, June, July or August.  In stead we often have week day evening local field trips--check the listing.  And May is International Migratory Bird Day month (see the listing below).  There are field trips, canoe trips, guided tours, beginning birding talks, and lots more.  Get involved!

Chapter Field Trips

Gray's Lake and potluck at Gosswiller's cabin, Thursday, May 22.  We'll meet at 8 AM at the Westside Walmart just inside the parking lot from the Utah Ave. Stoplight.  Bring snacks for the field and something special for a late potluck lunch. Gray's Lake is a major regional resource for migrating birds and for nesting cranes, curlews, and others.

Other Activities

International Migratory Bird Day 2015.  The theme this year is a great one: "Restore the Habitat, Restore the Birds."  We will celebrate the event Saturday, Saturday, May 16.  Ducks Unlimited has been generous enough once gain to offer use of their Roberts, ID facility.  We'll have activities for kids and adults, several walking and floating tours, another presentation by the Teton Raptor Center, a free lunch (as long as it lasts!), and more.  Check back in a few weeks for details.  A PDF of the event flyer is attached on our Birding Resources page.

If you are passionate about birds and want to be part of the action, come join us at our Monthly Board Meetings, usually the first Thursday evening of each month.  If you're interested let us know at email to Snake River Audubon, we'll send you details.


Here is a link to an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum titled "The Singing and the Silence: Birds in Contemporary Art".  Click on, "View the online gallery" to take a virtual tour.  Truly excellent.
