Habitat Program~ Bring Nature into Learning Environments

Audubon Connecticut’s Schoolyard Habitat Program is an initiative created in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) that develops healthy schoolyard habitats for both children and wildlife, integrates place-based environmental education into the school curriculum, and promotes environmentally-friendly practices among children and their families at home.  The Schoolyard Habitat Program not only provides opportunities for students to use their schoolyard as a living outdoor classroom and increase their understanding of ecology, their watershed, and Long Island Sound, it also provides students with the opportunity to play leadership roles in the development of the schoolyard habitat, and to engage in meaningful conservation activities at school, home, and in the community.
