Welcome to the Southern Maryland Audubon Society

The mission of the Southern Maryland Audubon Society is “to promote appreciation, conservation, and protection of birds, other wildlife, and their natural habitats through education, research and outreach”.

We would like to invite you to join us in the many ways we work to fulfill our mission. We have monthly meetings and field trips throughout most of the year, offer a variety of ways to become involved in the local birding community and produce an excellent newsletter we are proud to share with you. Please explore our website and then consider joining us for an adventure outdoors sometime. We’d love to have you.


Birding in Southern Maryland is a 16 page brochure created by the Southern Maryland Audubon Society to help the birding community find local bird watching locations. It covers Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s and southern Prince George’s counties. It is available HERE for download as a PDF file. Yu can print out a paper copy or save it to your smart phone or tablet to have handy for your next bird watching outing.
