about TAS

Welcome to the Tiadaghton Audubon Society of Tioga and Potter Counties. Our chapter was founded in 1906 with 23 members, making it the oldest chapter in the state. The Tiadaghton name was selected in 1953, and in 1972 the chapter was officially chartered. To contact us, please use the Facebook link below left. (Photo: Golden eagle photographed over Tioga Lake in February 2018. Golden eagles are rare birds in Tioga County and are often confused with immature bald eagles. Nevertheless, a few confirmed sightings are made every year.)

Hometown Science Festival

The first annual Hometown Science Festival will be held on the Green in Wellsboro August 12th from 10am to 4pm. This free event will feature hands-on science activities, demonstrations and programs for families. Pre-registration is not required. The Tiadaghton Audubon Society will offer scheduled bird walks throughout the day as well as owl pellet dissection and bird box construction. If you are interested in assisting TAS members with activities please let me know and we can get you on the contact list. The Hometown Science Festival and Series will also be holding a Visual Art Exhibit and Contest. The contest theme is "Science in our Daily Lives" and will be open to all age groups. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Feel free to distribute the Festival and Art Contest information to your friends and families.

If you are interested in helping with the Festival in a different capacity, we may need volunteers to assist other organizations with their activities. We are also still seeking participants for additional demonstrations, activities and programs. Fields such as technology, energy, health, chemistry and physics are encouraged.

The Hometown Science Series and Festival is a cooperative effort between the USGS Northern Appalachian Branch of the Leetown Science Center and the Tioga County Conservation District. This event would not be possible without the participation of local organizations such as the Tiadaghton Audubon Society! Feel free to contact me with any questions, thanks!
