National Audubon Society Offers Great Educational Resources

The mission of the National Audubon Society is to, "Protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas, using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation." Their beautiful website is full of resources that could be used in a variety of subjects and with students of all ages.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Binocular guide- provides tips on selecting binoculars as well as a guide to identify birds in the field. 
  • News- numerous articles that focus on science.
  • Ideas for how to get involved and help be an advocate for birds. 
  • Live bird webcams from around the United States. 
  • Education page with information on different nature camps for kids. 
  • Tips and tricks for photographing birds. 
  • Bird Guide with beautiful illustrations as well as bird calls for hundreds of different birds. 
If you want to see more posts about birds make sure you check out Wall of Birds and an Interactive Mural of Birds.

Applications for Education
This would be a great website to use with students of all ages who are researching birds,  conservation, habitats, or who need to identify birds. This site is also a great place to find current event articles.
