Audubon Adventures Educates Lane County Students

Audubon Adventures combines the best of all worlds for participating teachers and their students for the 2016/2017 school year. The new materials are available as printed newsletters with exciting online components. This award-winning environmental educational program introduces students to the fundamental principles by which the natural world functions. This year’s topic is “Go Wild for Birds” and includes three complete learning modules:

Owl Prowl: An introduction to the mysterious and endearing world of owls.

Waterbirds: Students will learn what waterbirds are and about the physical and behavioral characteristics that help them survive in water habitats.

Wild About Birds: Students explore the astounding diversity of birds, from body type and color to habitat and the behaviors that help a particular species survive in a particular place.

Developed by professional educators, the Audubon Adventures materials are designed for students in grades 3 through 6 and integrate easily into the existing curriculum areas of science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, and creative arts. Check out the website at www.audubonadventures.org.

This very popular program is funded by the generous donations of LCAS members through our Adopt-a-Classroom program. We are pleased to provide a full set of Audubon Adventures materials to each student in sponsored classrooms, at no cost to the schools. Teachers in Audubon Adventures classrooms receive several supplemental resources online and a year’s membership to National Audubon Society and Lane County Audubon Society.

Thank you to all our classroom sponsors for their generous support!
