Plumas Audubon Society
The Plumas Audubon Society is active with bird conservation efforts in Plumas, Sierra, and Lassen Counties in the northern Sierra Nevada of California. Our current projects include studies of the Flammulated Owl near Lake Davis; Clark's and Western Grebes on Lake Almanor, Eagle Lake, Lake Davis, and Antelope Lake; Bank Swallows in the American, Indian, and Genesee valleys; Burrowing Owls in the Sierra Valley; avian monitoring at the Feather River Land Trust's Heart K Ranch in Genesee Valley; and the construction of nest boxes for a variety of cavity-nesting species.
Our chapter actively engages the public in a variety of ways. Local residents are invited to participate in our a variety of conservation and research efforts. We also offer with a variety of educational and outreach events, including our new Youth Summer Outing Program, assorted seasonal field trips, and other events such as the Birds, Boats, and BBQ event at the Feather River Land Trust's Maddalena Ranch.

Plumas and Lassen counties are home to some of the largest breeding populations of grebes in the Intermountain West. In 2010 The Audubon Society launched a multi-year collaborative project with Audubon California, providing 3 California Audubon Chapters (Plumas, Redbud, and Altacal) with the means to monitor and determine threats to the nesting colonies at selected lakes throughout Northern California in an attempt to increase reproductive success. We are currently in the third year of surveys on our local lakes. Learn more about the Grebe Project. >>
