Look Around New York City
Look Around New York City is NYC Audubon's publication for children in fourth through sixth grades. It is distributed to about 850 classrooms and nature centers throughout the city. Look Around has been published for almost 25 years by a volunteer team of writers, artists, and editors. It features articles by professionals as well as kids. There are fun facts, mini-quizzes, interviews, and ideas for adults about city-based nature activities for children. Look Around aims to get city kids involved in their environment by promoting nature appreciation and preservation. Printing and free distribution of Look Around is made possible by a generous donation from Con Edison.
Our upcoming issues on “Birds in Art,” “Jamaica Bay’s Birds,” and “Introducing… the Thrushes” will be in full color, and are to be mailed by early January, 2015. Note: While our stated sign-up deadline of December 5 has passed, please do go ahead and enter your information at the link below, if you would like to receive copies of Look Around. While we may not be able to accommodate all requests, we will do our best--and will keep your information on file for the next publication of Look Around.
