Free activities, lesson plans, and other resources for connecting youth to nature.

The great outdoors may be the best place to learn about nature, but it’s not always possible to get there. That’s why our Community Naturalist program brings nature to you! With support from our members and funders, we provide free educational activities, games, books, lesson plans, and more for kids, parents and educators. Is there something you’d like to see added to this page? Please let Jacelyn Downey know by emailing jdowney@audubon.org.
