Maine Audubon delivers a variety of nature-themed programs for kids in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our educators can visit your classroom or guide class trips to a local nature sanctuary.
We will partner with you to design and deliver customized programming/curriculum for your school or community group. Together, we can adapt our signature programs, citizen science field studies, or service learning projects to enrich your current units of study.
Program prices start at $50 and we can work with you to provide the level of support you can afford.
Signature program themes include:
- Secrets of the Forest: Study the plants and animals of Maine forests
- Nature in Winter: Learn how Maine wildlife adapt to snow and cold
- Wetlands: Examine the pond, salt marsh, or ocean ecosystems
- Interdependence: Explore the balance of nature
- Cycles and Change: Look at the patterns of living systems: water, seasons, life cycles
