Mission
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.
History
The GOS was founded in Atlanta Georgia in 1936, with Roger Tory Peterson, who happened to be in Atlanta for a talk for the Atlanta Bird Club, in attendance. From the beginning, the GOS provided for both recreational and scientific birding, with the quarterly publication, the GOShawk as the newsletter and The Oriole as the scientific ornithological journal. Two meetings were held each year in various parts of Georgia, with a weekend of birding, fellowship and the reading of scientific papers. Over a dozen occasional papers were published through the years, together with bird lists and The Birder's Guide to Georgia (current revision is number thirteen). As members began to see bird habitat destroyed, they began to take more interest in the preservation of bird habitat and the protection of rare and endangered species. They also began providing scholarships for bird study.
General Membership Meetings
Meetings are held semi-annually in the winter and spring. 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.
