Monthly Meetings

Our monthly membership meetings are on hiatus for the summer. We will be picking up again in September with our annual potluck meeting and the opportunity for members to share some of their own photographs of nature or the environment. So get those cameras clicking and we'll see you in the fall.

Our meetings start at 7:00 PM with refreshments, followed by a short business meeting. Our speakers usually begin at 7:30 PM. Meetings are held at the NC Botanical Garden on Hwy. 15-501 at the intersection with Old Mason Farm Rd., in Chapel Hill. There is no charge for admission and all are welcome, members and non-members alike.

Creating a Bird Friendly Habitat and the NHAS Certification Program

New Hope Audubon is now offering a program for Chatham, Durham, and Orange Counties to certify your property as a Bird Friendly Habitat at a Silver, Gold, or Platinum level if you meet certain standards. If you are interested in having your property certified or just want information on how to make your property more bird-friendly, then click here.

For more information on any of the key elements of creating a bird friendly habitat, follow the links below.
