Join Us: Become a Supporting Member
Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society (SCVAS) is one of the largest, most active, and respected of the over 500 chapters of the National Audubon Society (NAS). By becoming a supporting member of our chapter, you are helping our local conservation efforts, youth environmental education programs (many of them for disadvantaged public schools), and citizen science efforts.
SCVAS is an independent chapter with its own membership, budget, and programs. We receive only a minimal stipend from NAS that does not even cover our Avocet newsletter, let alone our many programs.
Please note that we never share your name and information with other organizations.

What's New at SCVAS
Important McClellan Ranch Construction Update: To all of our members, visitors and customers: Please be advised that both the main parking lot and walkways at McClellan Ranch Preserve will be undergoing major repairs through the end of August. While the SCVAS office will remain open during this period (except for August 12th through 18th, when the nature shop will be closed), it may be difficult to get into the front office safely. If you do come to the Ranch, please be aware of the following:
1) Access to the parking lot is severely limited, and we strongly recommend that everyone park in the overflow lot at 22241 McClellan Rd and walk over the bridge.
2) The walkways and steps leading up to the main office and nature shop may be inaccessible at various times throughout the month.
If you wish to purchase items from our Nature Shop, and would have a hard time navigating the unstable surfaces of the paths, please call Cindy at 408-252-3747 - she would be more than happy to ring you up over the phone and bring the items to your car in the overflow lot. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Donating Benefits our Communities
Your tax-deductible donation allows SCVAS to increase the number of youngsters, many from low income families, that we reach with our local science education programs. Your donation dollars also support our many conservation efforts that make us one of the most effective conservation organizations in the Bay Area. We have many different ways that you can volunteer and donate.
