Young Audubon

Through our Young Audubon program, we engage children and their families in nature explorations outside of the school setting. Parents can join Young Audubon on behalf of their kids and family to receive announcements about our field trips, hands-on workshops, and events for kids and families. Activities include birding field trips, whale watching, creek explorations, and Wildlife Education Day, our annual fall festival. You can even schedule a guided birding field trip for your own small group!


Please contact our Outreach Coordinator at for more information.
