Huntington-Oyster Bay Audubon (HOBAS) is an all-volunteer chapter of the National Audubon Society, serving over 1,000 members in Huntington and Northern Oyster Bay Townships. HOBAS works to protect wildlife and preserve habitat through conservation action, education and responsible and ethical nature exploration.
Our efforts include spearheading the Preserve Plum Island Coalition, a Cats Belong Indoors educational campaign, funding the LI Otter Study, advocating for the protection of Long Island wildlife such as grey fox, diamondback terrapins and beach nesting birds, promoting bird friendly communities, twice yearly beach clean ups and conducting habitat restoration projects at several preserves. Prestigious speakers address vital conservation issues and nature topics at our monthly programs and we host year round field trips, ranging from general naturalist trips to birding, hiking and paddling adventures. Volunteers are the core of our efforts, since HOBAS has no paid staff. If you are interested in volunteering with us, or attending one of our events, programs or activities, please check our website.
