Audubon in Action

New Hope Audubon Society had a blast partnering with Durham Parks and Recreation (DPR), Constance Wright and the Red Maple Park community in Durham, and Urban Community AgriNomics (UCAN) for our Birding 101 program for 10-15 year-olds. We met for 2 hours a day for a week and did fun activities about birds and conservation, and we had several fantastic guests – Madeline James with the Museum of Life and Science, Delphine Sellars with UCAN, Jin Bai (NHAS), and Noelle Rizzieri with Piedmont Wildlife Center. Many thanks to Lynn Shapiro (NHAS) Constance Wright, Kindra Holden (UCAN) and Ryan Salistad, Patrick Beezley and Caitlin Sasse from DPR for their efforts!
