The Wintu Audubon Society, founded in 1975, is a chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Redding and the Shasta County area. The mission of the Wintu Audubon Society is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. We promote enjoyment of the natural environment through education and interactive programs.

You’re invited to join us on our Second Saturday and Weekday Bird Walks. Youth/Beginning Bird Walks are designed for youth, grades 4-8 and up, and beginners of all ages. We have binoculars to share. Meet at the concrete monolith at Turtle Bay (map) on the second Saturday of every month year-round, 9-11a.m., to learn the birds of our home town. Youth must be accompanied or signed in by an adult. Check the Calendar page for details.
Second Saturday walks for early risers meet at 8 a.m., also at the Turtle Bay Monolith, and are held the second Saturday of every month, September through May. Local Weekday Bird Walks are held once a month on weekdays. All Second Saturday Bird Walks and Local Weekday Bird Walks are open to the public.
