Habitat Program in schools and the community

Habitat Program~ Bring Nature into Learning Environments

Audubon's Schoolyard Habitat Program is an initiative program that develops healthy schoolyard habitats for both children and wildlife, integrates place-based environmental education into the school curriculum, and promotes environmentally-friendly practices among children and their families at home.  The Schoolyard Habitat Program not only provides opportunities for students to use their schoolyard as a living outdoor classroom and increase their understanding of ecology, their watershed, while also providing students with the opportunity to play leadership roles in the development of the schoolyard habitat, and to engage in meaningful conservation activities at school, home, and in the community.
