Become a Sustaining Friend

You are what hope looks like to local birdlife

This year, to the detriment of the birds we cherish, reinvigorated efforts are in motion that jeopardize San Diego’s public lands, threaten to defund the scientists and studies that inform our work and ultimately aim to undo protections for birds, other wildlife and their habitats. 

If you share our desire to protect local habitats and safeguard San Diego as a beautiful place for both people and wildlife, we invite you to become a Sustaining Friend of San Diego Audubon. Not only do monthly contributions provide SDAS with consistent and dependable revenue, as a Sustaining Friend your membership never expires. Our automated monthly gift option allows you to sign up to make monthly recurring gifts through automatic credit card donations. Monthly gifts can be suspended or stopped at any time by calling us at (858) 273-7800. A recurring monthly gift of $5 or more entitles you to all the benefits of Friends membership.

Friends membership benefits include:

  • Mailed subscription to Sketches newsletter with field trip listings
  • “Friends”-only guided sanctuary access opportunities and tours
  • Subscription to our e-newsletter with advance notification of events
  • Discounts on San Diego Audubon Workshops
  • Access to Avian Adventures birding tours
  • 10% discount on all merchandise at our office, including field guides
