Protection and improvement of bird habitat at Croton Point Park is one of our local issues of concern. This peninsula in the Hudson River is an important area for bird migration and nesting and is also a popular recreation spot for people. We are advocating for a better balance in park management because bird habitat in this park affects bird populations well beyond Westchester County.

Saw Mill River Audubon is committed to being a reasoned voice for the environment through advocacy based on sound science.

We work with a wide range of organizations, state and local governments, other Audubon chapters and Audubon New York and National Audubon to address shared concerns.

We also encourage you to let us know if there is a local environmental issue that concerns you. If it is outside our chapter area, we'll refer you to other contacts, including one of the other Audubon chapters in our area.
