Audubon Education

Supporting conservation through education


Our Education Legacy

A commitment to education is at the heart of the Audubon tradition. By inspiring more people in more places to value and protect the natural world, we are laying the foundation for future conservation. Audubon Centers are one of the principal elements of our education work. They have inspired more than 10 generations of Americans to learn about and protect birds, other wildlife, and the natural world. Our network of nature Centers now reaches more than a million visitors each year.

Moving People to Conservation Action

Our model for engaging people in conservation breaks new ground with its focus on measurable conservation results. Audubon Center programming and activities turn visitors into active participants in our conservation work saving birds and protecting habitat.

Building Diversity

Education also plays a pivotal role as Audubon engages new, more diverse audiences. It is why many of our most recently developed Centers are found in urban neighborhoods in such cities as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Columbus, Seattle, Dallas, and New York. Each Center is a vital community resource, with innovative programming that introduces people of all ages and backgrounds to nature and conservation.

Programs With Impact

Programs like Audubon Adventures, which reaches more than 100,000 school children a year, along with newer additions like Urban Oasis, which enlists urban communities to protect city parks and other outdoor public spaces that serve as rest stops for migrating birds, extend Audubon’s education impact beyond Centers.
