Mission Statement: We are people dedicated to preserving, restoring and enjoying the natural world through education and action.
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) was organized in 1982 as a local chapter of the National Audubon Society. We serve Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties in West Virginia and Washington County, Maryland. PVAS offers a wide variety of educational programs for children, adults, and families. Our goal is to get people of all ages outside to explore and learn about the natural world!
To help accomplish this goal, PVAS manages four nature preserves in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle, featuring a variety of habitats to hike and explore. The variety of activities and programs we offer is extensive. Check out the calendar section of our website. You can also subscribe to our e-newsletter, which goes out twice monthly:
