Audubon Adventures: Classrooms Seek Sponsors

“Go Wild for Birds” is the theme of the Audubon Adventures classroom materials set for the 2016/2017 school year. This award-winning environmental educational program introduces students to the fundamental principles by which the natural world functions. Interest is stimulated and reinforced through a combination of fascinating printed newsletters and exciting online components.

This year’s materials include three complete learning modules:

Wild About Birds This printed magazine introduces students to the astounding diversity of birds, from body type and color to habitat. They discover the behaviors that help a particular species survive in a specific place. Students are introduced to John James Audubon, the 19th-century naturalist whose paintings of birds are now considered to be national treasures, both as works of art and as works of scientific accuracy.

Get Involved—Volunteer!

Lane County Audubon Society is an all-volunteer organization, and our members are very proud of the energy and diverse talents that volunteers bring to our cause—we couldn’t do it without them. Volunteering with LCAS is a great way to meet new people, give back to the community, and—best of all—have fun! For more information, contact Maeve Sowles at 541.343.8664 or president (at)
