Audubon Brings Environmental Education to Families at Home
Smithfield, RI (March 24, 2020) – Spring has arrived! The warmer weather and time spent outdoors can be an inspiration for learning. With all of us spending a lot of time at home, exploring your backyard or taking a walk on an Audubon wildlife refuge with children is a refreshing idea. Exploring and enjoying nature provides exercise, stress relief and fresh air, which are so welcome and needed in this challenging time.
Pulling from years of environmental education experience and expert resources, Audubon introduces Audubon at Home, Nature Play and Learning, the new online resource for nature exploration.
Each week Audubon shares a different theme. One week it is all about owls, another week frogs. Watch for a week of turtle fun, learn all about the intelligent Raven, bug out with insects and more! Look for videos of Audubon critters, stories and places to hike, download craft ideas, explore fun facts, discover educational activities and more. Engaging and fun, it’s easy to review activities online and keep the kids engaged.
Videos and activities will be posted on Facebook and Instagram, and families are encouraged to visit www.asri.org to find additional materials, downloads and ideas for family fun.
