Environmental Education

Education is at the heart of Maine Audubon’s mission.

We work every day with children and adults to foster environmental literacy so that they can become more informed and effective stewards of Maine’s wildlife and habitat.

In addition to our standard adult programs – including bird walks, trips, speakers, and other classes designed to help adults further their environmental education – we regularly offer classes and programs for children and families, host field trips, visit classrooms, and provide programs and resources for educators.

Our complete listing of upcoming events and programs is available on our events website. You can also view specific types of programs:

Maine Environmental Literacy Plan CoverIn the News:
Maine Audubon is working with Maine Environmental Education Association, the Maine Department of Education, and others to revise Maine’s Environmental Literacy Plan. This revision is critical for aligning Maine’s plan with the federal No Child Left Inside Act of 2021, especially in order for Maine students and communities to benefit from federal support for climate education, outdoor learning, and workforce development. The goals and strategies laid out in the revised plan, when implemented, will greatly advance environmental literacy resulting in increased health and wellness for Maine’s people, lands, and waters.

Visit the Maine Department of Education website to see the full plan.
