About Kern Audubon Society

Founded in Bakersfield, CA in 1973 and incorporated in 1979, Kern Audubon Society is a thriving environmental organization in Kern County. The chapter continually plans a number of exciting, fun, and educational projects for the community. There are regular program meetings and field trips to both common and unique habitats in California. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the KCSOS building at 1300 17th Street. Join us at a meeting or a field trip!
