Straits Area Audubon Society

SAAS hosts community events for education, offers grants and enthusiastic partnerships in the enjoyment and conservation of wildlife and their habitats

The mission of the Straits Area Audubon Society is to educate  the community,  including  its children, about conservation and  enjoyment of the natural world  with emphasis on  the local  natural communities of wildlife.  This will be  accomplished  through regular  seasonal meetings and by sponsoring field trips,  classroom studies and field studies.


Straits Area Audubon Society, founded in 1983,  holds frequent field trips as well as free monthly programs on the second Wednesday of every month from September through May.  Programs are held at 6 p.m. at Cheboygan Area Public Library, 100 S. Bailey St. in Cheboygan.  Refreshments and a brief business meeting highlighted by recent nature sightings follow the program.  Attendees are invited to participate in door prize and raffle drawings.
