  • Meet other people interested in learning about wild birds.
  • Teach beginners and share knowledge with people of all ages.
  • ​Attend field trips and to become acquainted with local birding sites and improve birding skills in beautiful Central Oregon habitats.
  • Attend monthly Birders’ Night, hosting local and national speakers on topics about birds and our environment.
  • Receive ECAS e-newsletters.
  • Attend our Annual Event, a social gathering that combines business with the pleasure of honoring our volunteers.

ECAS offers six annual membership levels, as well as a lifetime membership:

ECAS is an independent chapter of the National Audubon Society, and dues to National Audubon do not support our wide range of field trips, meetings, research, surveys, restoration projects, and other local activities.

Because ECAS is a section 501(c)(3) organization, your membership dues, contributions and all gifts are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
