Audubon Celebrates 54 Years with Online Celebration and Fabulous Keynote Presenter

Written By Editor on 10/12/21 | 10/12/21

Mark Your Calendars for the 54th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society, taking place on Friday, October 15, 2021 - online - starting at 6:30 p.m. 

After reviewing the results of an online survey conducted over the summer, and after lengthy discussion, the DOAS Board of Directors, out of an abundance of caution, concluded that it would be best to forgo the in-person dinner. Like last year, the celebration will take place completely online.

The familiar "Bucket" Raffle is currently underway and has gone virtual. It features many fine items generously donated by local artisans and patrons. Photos of all raffle items and information for how to obtain raffle tickets are available at For patrons who do not use the internet, DOAS will mail you the raffle information. Contact us by phone at 607-397-3815 or by mail at PO Box 544, Oneonta, 13820.

Our featured presenter will be naturalist and author Scott Weidensaul, who provided a captivating program for us in April on the wonders of migration. His Zoom presentation for the Charter Celebration will focus on the smallest owl found in the east, the Northern Saw-whet Owl, a species he has been researching for over a quarter of a century. Details about Scott’s presentation are available at

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED: A donation of $25 is suggested (but not required) in lieu of dinner fees. You must register in advance for the celebration/webinar by October 15th. After registering, a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar will be sent along with a reminder email the day before the event.  Register at
