Audubon Maryland-DC is the region's leading voice for the conservation and protection of natural resources for birds. Integrating science, conservation, policy and education, Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
Patterson Park Audubon Center in Baltimore developed a curriculum for wildlife gardening presentations that it has refined over the three years of sharing this message in Baltimore communities. On November 5, the Center led a training for volunteers representing all five chapters of Audubon Maryland-DC and Pickering Creek Audubon Center. Training attendees received the new title of Audubon Ambassadors and have been charged with leading presentations to foster bird-friendly gardening and Audubon garden recognition in communities across Maryland. The expansion of this successful program represents new partnerships as well as a commitment to improving habitat for birds, one garden at a time. Let's spread it like wildflower!
