The Northern Shenandoah Valley Audubon Society "NSVAS" is a chapter of The National Audubon Society, Inc. NSVAS is a non-profit organization which serves the City of Winchester and the Counties of Frederick, Clarke, Warren, Shenandoah, and also portions of Loudoun, Fauquier, and Rappahannock. NSVAS also sponsors the monitoring of two local Bluebird Trails in Clarke and Warren Counties. Local Membership, $15 annual dues, is open to anyone with an interest in birds, our environment, and conservation. Membership includes 4 issues per year of the Chapter's "Oak Leaf" newsletter, notices of special local events, participation in migratory bird counts, field trips, and basic operating costs. NSVAS makes its home at the State Arboretum of Virginia at Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, Virginia in Clarke County.

The NSVAS is also a member of American Bird Conservation, Coastal Virginia Wildlife, Foundation of the State Arboretum (FOSA), Purple Martin Society, Virginia Society of Ornithology (VSO), Virginia Conservation Network, and Virginia Audubon Council. Being a member of NSVAS also makes you a member of these organizations and allows donations to be made to other worthwhile conservation organizations.
