The RBC was founded in 1974 for the purpose of encouraging bird study, their enjoyment and protection. It meets monthly (September to June) with informative programs and sponsors field trips during the year. The membership consists of amateur and professional birders and is open to anyone interested in birds as a vital part of our natural heritage.

RBC participates in the annual Christmas Bird Count, and raises money for bird conservation projects through sale of seed and modest dues.
