Founded in 1913, the purpose of the Chautauqua Bird, Tree & Garden Club is to help keep Chautauqua beautiful.
The organization advocates the protection of birds and bats, the conservation and expansion of Chautauqua's tree canopy and the maintenance of the gardens of the Chautauqua Institution. The club’s offerings include a lecture program, nature walks, bird walks, tree talks, bat chats and biennial nature pilgrimages and house tours.
