Birding here in the Verde has many friends and these are appreciated and recognized by us.


naas Northern Arizona Audubon Society (NAAS) is based among the scenic red rock canyons of Sedona and the lofty peaks of Flagstaff. Our birding world ranges from the Verde Valley to the Grand Canyon and beyond to the Utah border. Our members are active in birding, conservation and education. We offer member meetings with guest speakers from September to May. Field trips are led by our volunteers year round. Conservation work below the rim is a winter activity, while the pleasant Flagstaff summers encourage outdoor work during June-September. Come visit us and we will show you the birding perspective to Northern Arizona!

Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival The Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival has, in more than ten years, provided late April birding field trips and workshops for hundreds of enthusiasts from all over the country. This organization, more than any other, has promoted the natural resources of the Verde Valley to birders of all ages. The very existence of the Birding Trail is owed to the Festival.
