GEAS is southwestern Idaho's local chapter of the National Audubon Society. We are an all-volunteer organization based in Boise, Idaho.
The Golden Eagle Audubon Society (GEAS) became southwest Idaho’s chapter of the National Audubon Society in 1972. We began as a group of birders who wanted to provide opportunities for people with mutual interests in nature and the out-of-doors to gather together, get acquainted, and have fun. In the 32 years since the organization formally began, GEAS has continued to grow and expand in our mission. For years GEAS has supported many conservation actions, advocated for the protection of birds and their habitats, contributed to multiple citizen science projects, educated adults and children about birds, and continued to provide cost-free opportunities to enjoy nature. GEAS members and leaders have helped shape many special places in southwestern Idaho including the Boise River Greenbelt, Hulls Gulch Reserve, Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve, and Blacks Creek Bird Reserve.
