Here's just a small sampling of the initiatives we've sustained over the years.
The Eastern Bluebird Project
BRSS is helping to bring back New York’s State Bird, the Eastern Bluebird
Our mission is that future generations of New Yorkers will get to see their State Bird, the Eastern Bluebird.
Since 1998, we have installed over 250 nestboxes. The population of Eastern Bluebirds in our area went from NO bluebirds to over 110 nesting attempts in 2015.
Explore this site, learn about the Eastern Bluebird and how you, too, can help in this important environmental mission. This project teaches that the actions of a few individuals CAN make a difference to the survival of a species..
Our Bird Seed sales are our main fundraiser. With this income we are able to carry out our environmental mission. We put on education programs, send children to nature camp and have funds for other environmental projects such as our Eastern Bluebird Project.
We have two sales a year - in early fall and mid winter.
Thanks for supporting our latest seed sale.

Each summer BRSS tries to assist youngsters who could not otherwise have a wildlife camp experience. Scholarships are currently available for the upcoming camp season.
The scholarship usually pays for one full week at a Westchester County Ecology Camp. Parents must provide transportation.
If you know of a child interested in this experience and has financial need, please contact BRSS Audubon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Bird Seed Sale provides the funds for these scholarships. Thank you for supporting it.
