Active RBA Committees

As an organization, the RBA strives to support birds and birders in the greater Rochester and the Genesee Valley region of New York. We promote birding and conservation, educate people about birds, produce this website, as well as a paper and e-newsletter, collect and share bird data, hold monthly meetings with fantastic speakers, organize 50+ field trips per year, including beginner field trips, and lots more.

Each of these activities requires the work and direction of passionate people who care about birds and birding. Meet our Committee Chairs, below.
