Education and Outreach
NYC Audubon has expanded its Education and Outreach program, starting with our seasonal residency on Governors Island and most recently an expansion of our Feathered Friends After School Birding Club.

The Feathered Friends After School Birding Club, founded by NYC Audubon board member Chris Cooper, is an educational extracurricular program brought to elementary schools by New York City Audubon for six weeks in the fall and six weeks in the spring.

NYC Audubon has a seasonal island home, right off the coast of Manhattan! Our seasonal nature center on Governors Island features plenty of information about bird conservation, as well as a book nook and craft room for kids, bird-inspired art exhibits, and open artist studios. Sit on our porch and watch our bird feeder, or borrow a pair of binoculars for free and strike out on your own.
