Decatur Audubon Society
Educational Opportunities
and Resources


Audubon Adventures, Seasonal Naturalist and Grants

The Decatur Audubon Society offers educational opportunities and financial assistance to students and teachers in the Decatur and Macon County area. We fund a large part of the cost of Audubon Adventures for local classrooms. We help with funding to bring other nature programming into Decatur and Macon County schools. We fund a naturalist's position at the Rock Springs Center in order to increase the availability of field trips and other nature-focused educational programming at the Center.



Audubon Adventures


Audubon Adventures

In this program students in grades 3 through 6 learn about the natural world through Audubon Adventures, a classroom program featuring a bimonthly children's newspaper and leader's guide. This unique classroom program brings a wonder and appreciation of nature to elementary school students. We fund a portion of the cost of Audubon Adventures for use in local classrooms. Many Macon County teachers have found the Audubon Adventures materials to be an invaluable resource for their classes. Want Audubon Adventures materials for your Macon County, Illinois classroom? Email us at info 'at' decatur-audubon.org and let us know.



Seasonal Naturalist

Decatur Audubon funds the position of a part-time naturalist at Rock Springs Center. This person, the Audubon Seasonal Naturalist, leads discovery hikes and presents nature-oriented programs during the spring and fall for school and other youth groups.

Many city students get their first glimpse of the woods and the wonders of trees and wildlife during a hike led by Decatur Audubon's Seasonal Naturalist. Eyes and minds are opened.
