Audubon Adventures introduces young people, their families, and their teachers to the fundamental principles by which the natural world functions. The lessons that Audubon Adventures teaches offer an exciting, science-based exploration of those principles at work anchored in nonfiction reading and outdoor and classroom activities that help kids to care for the planet by helping birds and other wildlife.
The Audubon Adventures materials were developed by professional educators, are designed for students in grades 3 through 8, and integrate easily into the existing curriculum areas of science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, and creative arts. Audubon Adventures has been used in classrooms, home schools, after-school programs, camp programs, ESL classes, and more.
Since its inception in 1984, more than 7 million students have participated in the program.
Why Audubon created Audubon Adventures
Audubon envisions a future with a community of citizens aware of the environmental consequences of their daily activities. It is a community with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make informed choices among alternative courses of action that result in minimizing negative effects on our shared environment. Audubon Adventures gives young people the foundation necessary for recognizing individual and collective responsibility for the health of our environment.
