Audubon New Mexico teaches our Birds of a Feather Explore Together Environmental Education, which is directly aligned with New Mexico’s science standards and benchmarks and helps students understand that birds and humans share needs and habitats. Importantly, it addresses how birds play a critical role in indicating the health of our world and how changes in their circumstance warn of threats to habitats and natural systems critical to all life. Students develop knowledge about birds through experiential activities focusing on bird adaptations - feathers, nests, eggs, beaks, claws and talons - as well as the scientific dissection of owl pellets. Students also experience an “outdoor classroom” as they observe local bird species, plants and animals.

Low-income students in New Mexico have very limited access to outdoor education programs, and for many teachers, Audubon programs are the only substantive science lessons their students receive. Practicing inquiry through place-based environmental learning is engaging and will increase the likelihood of students taking a stronger interest in math and science courses, key areas needed for college readiness.

A "Song" From The Bosque

Did you know that “song” is Tewa for porcupine? Neither did a lot of children from Santa Clara Pueblo, where Tewa is their native language, until they saw it in a recently produced brochure by Audubon and the Pueblo, with funding from TogetherGreen.
