(BHAS) is a chapter of the National Audubon Society (see NAS’ newly redesigned website). BHAS represents Lewis, Mason, and Thurston counties in the state of Washington. It is an all-volunteer-based, non-profit organization whose 1,300+ members share interests in birds and other wildlife, their habitats, and natural history. Our goals are to promote environmental education and recreation and to maintain and protect our ecosystems for future generations.

We also work with the state Audubon office (Audubon Washington).
