The Nature Sounds Society is a world-wide organization whose principal purpose is to encourage the preservation, appreciation and creative use of natural sounds. The Society promotes education in the technological, scientific and aesthetic aspects of nature sounds through its programs and a diverse network of contacts.

The Society sponsors concerts, film showings, speaking events and field activities for recording, such as the Annual Field Workshop at San Francisco State University's field station at Yuba Pass and occasional recording club field events.

The organization is composed of biologists, museum professionals, conservationists, sound designers, musicians, artists and radio producers concerned with ambient natural sound.
