Who We Are

Waccamaw Audubon Society (WAS) is the local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving northeastern South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina. With over four hundred members, WAS has programs and field trips (the public is invited).

Waccamaw Audubon is especially proud of its recognition by the National Audubon Society, which awarded WAS one of the first-ever Rachel Carson Awards for its work in helping establish the new Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge.

Waccamaw Audubon's Mission Statement: To educate and make aware of our local wildlife, especially the birds, and the importance of preserving our natural ecosystems.


What We Do

Waccamaw Audubon Society has a thirty-year history of activism and service to the local community.

Waccamaw Audubon Society also serves as the host to the annual Litchfield Beach - Pawleys Island Christmas Bird Count, one of over 1700 Christmas Bird Counts counts held nationally. The Litchfield - Pawleys Island Count includes a 15-mile diameter circle centered on US Highway 17 at the gate to North Litchfield and regularly affords birders with counts of over 150 species. A complete report of the 2003 Litchfield-Pawleys Island Christmas Bird Count, one of the most successful ever, can be found here, while count data for all years may be viewed at the National Audubon CBC database. Use count circle code SCLP.  The count for 2013 is scheduled for Dec. 30.

Waccamaw Audubon Society has sponsored a "BIRDING FOR TEACHERS" program at Huntington Beach State Park.  This program was started by Bill Lanham and Mike Walker.  It has grown in popularity and notoriety.  The program is scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Contact Bill Lanham for details:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
