Junior Audubon

Junior Audubon is an after-school club for elementary school-aged children interested in learning about nature, the environment, with a focus on birds. Members meet once a month for after school meetings at Fuerza Elementary School, 3:20 – 4:20 pm.

Members also have the opportunity to participate an Audubon Climate Study counting Red-breasted Nuthatches with Audubon volunteers on two Saturdays this year. Members can earn a pin for learning to identify ten birds.


How to Join

For information and to join Junior Audubon, email Education. Junior Audubon membership is free this year and includes the Curlew newsletter.
