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 like Pickering Creek are one of the principal elements of our education work. It has inspired generations to learn about and protect birds, other wildlife, and the natural world. Pickering Creek reaches over 13,000 contacts each year, part of Audubon's network of nature Centers reaching 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.
