In 1971, the Firelands Audubon Society (FAS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Erie and Huron counties of Ohio), was formed with a mission statement to:


protect, preserve and appreciate  natural habitat for birds and wildlife through conservation and education. 

The Firelands

The Firelands area encompasses Erie County, Huron County and the Marblehead area of Ottawa County. These areas include a wonderful variety of marshes, beaches, hardwood forests, rivers, streams, estuaries and more. Learn about excellent birding areas and our local birds here. 

Christmas Bird Count

The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing tradition of the National Audubon Society with over 100 years of citizen science involvement. This early winter bird census will cover our CBC circle in an effort to record birds over a 24-hour period.
