The Georgia Ornithological Society's (GOS) mission is to encourage the scientific study of birds by gathering and disseminating information on Georgia bird life. GOS actively promotes bird conservation by encouraging the preservation of habitats that are vital to the survival of resident and migratory birds. The GOS also gives scholarships, produces scientific publications, and provides fellowship among those interested in nature.

General Membership Meetings

General membership meetings are held two or three times per year in the spring, winter and fall. The meetings generally last from Friday evening through Sunday or Monday mid-day and feature evening presentations of interest to the birding community and field trips conducted by experienced birders familiar with the areas in which the meetings are held.
