Deadline is today for Audubon Schoolyard Training program

The National Audubon Society is offering an exciting opportunity to make a difference in your school community.

Once a year, the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) National Conservation Training Center offers a course in the Schoolyard Habitat Program. This year, the course is taking place at Audubon Greenwich and it will be the first time the course has been held in Connecticut.

Audubon Greenwich’s efforts with their urban oases and schoolyard habitat projects in New Haven as part of the National Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership has brought national attention to the state. With this course, they have the opportunity to continue to build capacity and support for these projects by training  any interested individuals in the program.

The course will benefit partners for fish and wildlife personnel, refuges and fisheries visitor services professionals, educators, outdoor recreational planners, landscape architects or anyone whose resource management efforts would be enhanced or supported by education initiatives.

The Schoolyard Habitat Program is a coordinated effort between schools, USFWS offices and other conservation and community organizations to establish ecologically sound restoration projects that are sustainable outdoor learning areas on school sites.

The course includes four in-person sessions and two 90-minute webinars. The in-person sessions will take place from Sept. 8 to Sept. 11, with the webinars occuring on Aug. 19 and Oct. 28 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. via Adobe Connect. Participants must attend each session in order to complete the course.

The registration deadline is today, July 31, and tuition is $796. You can register with [email protected] or call 304-876-7339. Audubon Greenwich is located at 613 Riversville Road.
