Audubon At School
For every child that does not encounter real nature on a regular basis, we lose a steward for the future. That’s why Audubon travels the state promoting schoolyard habitats (elementary and middle schools) and outdoor laboratories (colleges and universities) – so that nature comes to the campus to be nurtured, studied, and preserved. http://johnjames.audubon.org/programs
Audubon At Work
Studies have shown that workers who have access to a view of nature or to the physical greenspace itself, have reduced negative emotions and greater positive feelings which result in greater productivity. That’s why Audubon is working to inform business landscapes and encouraging the inclusion of bird-friendly native plant communities in foundation plantings and landscape masterplans. In the end, it could save thousands of landscape maintenance dollars. http://pa.audubon.org/conservation/bird-habitat-recognition-program
