About Redbud Audubon

The Redbud Audubon Society was founded in 1974 by a group of conservation minded Lake County Citizens. We are a nonprofit California corporation and operate under the umbrella of the National Audubon Society, one of the biggest and most successful conservation organizations in the Nation. When you join National Audubon Society, you receive the National Audubon Society Magazine and our monthly newsletter, the Western Grebe, which describes local programs and field trips and provides other conservation news. Your dues and donations help fund our organization’s local programs.

As of summer 2022, we are planning to have two in-person meetings at the beginning of our regular season.  Starting in September, we will host an in-person meeting at the Kelseyville Presbyterian Church.  Another in-person meeting will be held there in October, before returning to our Zoom presentations for November through March. We have received feedback that during the winter months most people prefer that programs be presented on Zoom.

Redbud Audubon presents programs every third Thursday from September through April. The programs start at 7 p.m. and are a mixture of in-person and Zoom. The public is warmly invited to all Redbud programs that feature interesting guest presenters. Redbud Audubon holds field trips on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Trips will be announced in the newsletter, on the website or through email blasts to members that have given us their emails. The Society is inactive from June through August.

Each December, Redbud Audubon participates in the annual Christmas Bird Count. Information on the previous year’s CBC can be found here.

Heron Days, sponsored by Redbud Audubon, is a popular event held each spring and is open to the public.

Since 2010, Redbud Audubon Society has focused on the conservation of grebes at Clear Lake, which supports one of the largest breeding populations of grebes in California.
