Local Audubon Society

The Desert Rivers Audubon Society (DRAS) is the local chapter of the National Audubon Society. DRAS meets the second Tuesday of the month at the Gilbert Library at Guadalupe and Greenfield at 7:00 p.m., but only October through March of each year. You are invited to join.

The fall bird migration has started, and lakes are spotted with Wigeons, Ring Necks, Mergansers, Coots, Buffleheads and more.

DRAS sponsors the Birdwalks at Veterans Oasis Park at Lindsay and Chandler Heights Roads on the first Saturday of the month from 8:00 a.m.-noon. On the third Saturday of the month from 8:00 a.m.-noon, DRAS is at the Gilbert Water Park at Guadalupe and Greenfield.
