    Join the Cape Cod Bird Club

    Would you like to join The Cape Cod Bird Club?

    The Cape Cod Bird Club is an organization whose members are interested in the protection and conservation of the bird life and natural resources of Cape Cod and beyond.

    Dues are $20 for a single individual, and $25 for a family membership. Membership dues finance programming at monthly meetings, a scholarship to a Cape Cod Community College student who has shown an interest in bird conservation, nest box monitoring aimed at increasing Eastern Bluebird populations, and informative field trips throughout the year.

    Some members choose to make an additional contribution beyond their dues for one of these projects.  Those donations are always welcome.

    To learn more, visit www.capecodbirdclub.org
