COVID-19 has made it a challenging year for all of us, but our education staff has been busy developing innovative ways to continue to connect everyone with nature during this trying time—when we need it most. On-site, in-person Audubon summer camp may be canceled, but we're excited to provide a new Virtual Summer Camp option.
Join Audubon Connecticut for Week 4 — The Amazing World of Plants. Get a firsthand look into the mysterious and strange ways of the common (and not-so-common) plants and the animals who use them. Learn about pollinators and native host plants, find out how to make seed bombs, identify common invasive species, and get a glimpse into Monarch Butterfly tagging.
