Bay County Audubon Society (BCAS) was founded in 1962 by citizens dedicated to the preservation of natural areas and  wildlife habitat.  One of our primary goals is to increase
the awareness and appreciation of wildlife and the natural habitat upon which it depends. Bay County Audubon Society has been a 501(c)(3)  not-for-profit organization since 1975.

Bay County Audubon Society is a local chapter of Florida Audubon and the National Audubon Society serving Panama City and surrounding areas in Bay, Gulf, Calhoun, Washington, Holmes and Jackson County.

3. Develop strategies to increase Chapter membership  and retention.
