Join SFVAS — First Year Free!

Founded over a century ago, this chapter of the National Audubon Society has spent the intervening decades working to expand and preserve wildlife habitat and educate the public on issues crucial to the well being of our avian wildlife.

As a member of the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, you will receive six issues annually of its topical and informative newsletter, the Phainopepla. You will be entitled to all benefits and privileges of membership — and encouraged to take part in the activities of the chapter. There is no need for you to have any prior birding skills. You will be joining a community of bird enthusiasts more than happy to share their knowledge…and make a birder out of you. Browse this website to get a taste of all we do.

We are currently offering a first-year membership at the $20 level (online Phainopepla). Please do not join twice at this level — it only creates busywork for our volunteer webmaster. And please…do join. We’re sure you’ll be glad you did.
