The Sacramento Audubon Society’s Education Committee has a core group of birders and naturalists who seek out groups or organizations – and upon request – make presentations to adult and youth audiences. A key objective is to reach out to the broad and diverse community to inform and educate, encourage participation in Audubon programs and activities, and stimulate an interest in the environment.
The following PowerPoint presentations were developed by a Sacramento Audubon member and may be used for any age group including K-12 classrooms, and service or social organizations or clubs.
* Common Birds of Sacramento – with calls and interesting facts about size shape and habits
* Why Do Birds Do That – a look at 10 common bird behaviors
* Cool Things That Birds Do – unusual things that birds do
* Bird Courtship Behaviors – how different species attract mates
* Bird Habitats of Sacramento County – how different habitats influence the birds seen there
An Audubon presenter will work with the group to develop a focus, which may expand beyond the listed topics.
Although optional, community groups such as garden clubs, senior centers, service organizations and other non-youth organizations may donate to Sacramento Audubon Society. The donations support youth education programs such as the annual Kids’ Christmas Bird Count at Effie Yeaw Nature Center and Teens’ Christmas Bird Count at various locations, and the Environmental Education Program for the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps.
