Conservation

Working with partners to improve habitat along the Atlantic Flyway at Pickering Creek and in surrounding communities.

From creating wetlands and warm season grass meadows on the 400 acre Pickering Creek Audubon Center, to creating schoolyard habitats or planting saltmarsh grasses in Maryland's Important Bird Areas, Pickering Creek Audubon Center is working with partners to improve bird habitat on Maryland's Eastern Shore. To make an even bigger impact for wildlife, every habitat project at Pickering Creek and in the community includes a student driven component.  Students learn about bird habitats, make recommendations and implement habitat plantings that connect them deeply to the natural world around them.
