Mission Statement

Audubon New York is the state's leading voice for the conservation and protection of natural resources for birds. Integrating science, conservation, policy, and education, Audubon's mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. With 50,000 members and 27 affiliated chapters state-wide, Audubon New York oversees seven sanctuaries and centers, from Long Island to western New York, and protects priority habitats including more than 130 Important Bird Areas (IBAs) identified as critical for the conservation of birds.

Description

Audubon New York’s For the Birds! Program is looking for volunteer teachers for all five boroughs of NYC. For the Birds! is an elementary education program that teaches environmental awareness and appreciation of nature through the study of birds. During a 4, 8 or 16 week session, public and private school students in grades 2 through 4 learn about their natural environment through classroom lessons, outdoor field trips, and a conservation project designed to improve bird habitat in the local community. For the Birds! exposes students, usually for the first time, to the idea that their own neighborhoods provide valuable habitat to birds and other urban wildlife.
