What we do
We work to conserve critical bird habitats in partnership with other organizations and the state.
Our youth birding group and co-sponsorship of the Frontiers in Ornithology Symposium provide activities for school age birders.
From Hawk Watches to Christmas Bird Counts, we run a number of projects studying Delaware's birds.
Our signature fundraising event has raised money to purchase over 2000 acres of critical bird habitat.
A word from our president
“DOS welcomes anyone with an interest in Delaware's birds, from beginner to expert. There are many activities that you can participate in and many volunteer opportunities. Whether it is birding, conservation, science or education, there is something for everyone. Consider joining today.”
Michael Moore, DOS President
