The Lackawanna Audubon Society is an independent organization of nature loving folks centered in Lackawanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania. The society, originally called the Scranton Bird Club, has been in existence since 1915. It has a yearly series of field trips, both day trips and and overnights, and a series of speaker presentations in association with the Scranton Anthracite Museum. For more information on programs see:

Current Society Newsletter and Calendar

In addition the society runs the Scranton area Christmas Bird Count, the National Audubon Society Spring Migration Count for Lackawanna County, and an annual High Bird Count contest during spring migration. We have adopted Snake Road near Scranton's McDade Park for litter cleanup.

The society manages 2 nature sanctuaries in the region (Directions to Sanctuaries). The Davis Crossing sanctuary is located near Lake Winola, PA, and consists of upland forest acreage surrounding a large former beaver pond. There is an observation tower for viewing the former pond area and a number of nature trails through the forests. The Forest Acres sanctuary is located near the Abington Heights Middle School, Newton Township, PA, and consists of second growth forest and a portion of a large pond and marsh complex. The sanctuaries are open to all society members. Nonmembers should contact society officers for permission to enter them.
