About Kern Audubon
Founded in Bakersfield in 1973, incorporated in 1979, Kern Audubon Society began a re-birth in 2006 after a four year hiatus. New and renewing members and officers are joining together to make the KAS a thriving environmental organization in Kern County. The Chapter has been re-certified by the National Audubon Society and we are planning a number of exciting, fun, and educational projects for our chapter and the community.

There are regular program meetings and field trips to both common and unique habitats in California. Visit the pages below to learn more about our Chapter. Join us at a meeting or a field trip.
