Community Naturalist

Discover the natural wonder of Wyoming and Colorado.

People will only conserve what they care about, but people are increasingly disconnected from nature. Our community naturalists deliver in-person programs to people of all ages to create lasting connections with nature in their communities. By developing high-quality resources for educators, we are greatly expanding our education impact.

Programs

Through hands-on education programs both in the classroom and in nature, our community naturalists work one-on-one with youth and adults, providing the tools and the encouragement for them to learn about and care for the places in which they live. We bring nature to the classroom and vice versa, customizing lessons to match your needs and local environment. Contact Dusty Downey (ddowney@audubon.org) to request a program!

Resources and Trainings

We provide a variety of free, ready-to-go resources to help educators teach their students about science and local nature! Do you want to learn how to better connect your students to nature? Check out our teacher trainings or contact Jacelyn Downey (jdowney@audubon.org) to learn more.

Community Science

Science is an empowering way to connect people to nature, and it isn't just for professional scientists! Community science is the collection and analysis of data by members of the general public. Learn how you can help bird conservation as a community scientist!
