Description & History

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.
