VAAS Member Benefits

As a member of VAAS, you will receive five issues of the informative VAAS newsletter, Wings & Things. We will keep you up-to-date about exciting trips and programs via Trips & Programs Guides and by sending you periodic ChipNote email reminders. You will be a voting member of VAAS business meetings, held before each program meeting at the Venice Audubon Center. In addition to connecting with other bird lovers, VAAS members help shape Venice area conservation policies and environmental educational efforts, participate in the stewardship of the Venice Audubon Center, Butterfly Garden, and Rookery and respond to opportunities to lead bird trips, share favorite birding resources, learn more about the natural environment of the Venice area, and work with others in VAAS to put individual skills in the service of birds and their habitats.
