Spread It Like Wildflower

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!
