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. To engage even more people in bird conservation, we develop trainings and resources for educators.

Programs

Through hands-on environmental education programs in the classroom and outdoors, our community naturalists connect youth and adults to bird conservation in their communities. We also bring nature to the classroom and vice versa, customizing lessons to match your needs and local environment. Click here to browse our public events.

Resources and Trainings

Do you want to learn how to better connect youth to nature? We provide a variety of free, ready-to-go resources to help educators teach their students about science and local nature. Check out our educator resources and educator workshops.

Community Science

Science is a powerful way to connect people to nature and bird conservation, 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 birds as a community scientist!
