Bronx River – Sound Shore Audubon Society, Inc. (BRSS) is a local chapter of the National Audubon Society 

With over 700 members, our geographic area in New York is the lower Westchester County communities of Bronxville, Eastchester, Edgemont, Hartsdale, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, Pelham, Scarsdale, and Tuckahoe. 

We were founded in 1947 under the name of Scarsdale Audubon Society, Inc. In 2002 we changed our name to Bronx River – Sound Shore Audubon Society, Inc. to better reflect our geographic area and its members. Most of our communities lie between the Bronx River and the Long Island Sound.

 BRSS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and is led by a volunteer Board of Directors.

All our programs and field trips are free and open to the public. We invite you to join BRSS so that you receive our newsletter and notification of all our events. 

Our Mission

Bronx River – Sound Shore Audubon, Inc. was incorporated for the purpose to increase the numbers and influence of those who believe in the value and need of the conservation of our wildlife, plants, soil and water resources, and of the relations to public welfare of their intelligent treatment and wise use; to join with like-minded groups to take steps better to protect and conserve those natural resources and wildlife; to assist its members and others, children and adults, in learning to identify birds, mammals and insects, and studying their life habits, the better to understand the interdependence of man and all Nature.


A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.
— John James Audubon
