Benjamin F. Goss Bird Club
Waukesha, WI

The Benjamin F. Goss Bird Club was founded to increase knowledge and appreciation of birds through education, research, preservation and conservation, and to provide public awareness of birds and their role in the environment - all of which remains our goal and purpose to this day.


Stay connected with the club by visiting the Goss Bird Club Facebook Page for news about the club and area birds, or by joining our Facebook Discussion Group, where you can share your own sightings, stories, or ask questions of local birding experts.
