About our Organization
Dedicated to the Enjoyment and Protection of Birds, Wildlife & the Environment through Education, Research, and Conservation
Washington Crossing Audubon Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enjoyment and protection of birds, wildlife, and the environment through education, research, and conservation.
WCAS is the local chapter of the National Audubon Society in central New Jersey, encompassing all of Mercer County and parts of Burlington, Hunterdon, and Somerset Counties. Since 1979 WCAS has been an active voice in local conservation issues, countering development initiatives and speaking out for the protection and stewardship of our cherished preserved open spaces.
Experienced WCAS officers and affiliates lead birding field trips to some of the region’s best birding locations, and co-sponsor many other field trips with partnership organizations. The organization also hosts monthly lectures that are free and open to the general public, featuring guest speakers who cover a diverse range of topics relating to birds, wildlife, and the environment.
Through the Holden Grant program and funds raised by our annual Birdathon event, WCAS funds numerous stewardship projects, education programs, and conservation-oriented scientific research.
