Adventures with Audubon – Come spend an hour in the studio of one of America’s greatest naturalists and wildlife artist. Listen to tales of
his adventures as he finishes something no one had ever accomplished before: drawing every bird in North America. With an emphasis on the scientific process, STEM, and lessons in inquiry, Audubon will enchant you with stories of his travels and travails in the wildest places on
the planet, including a tour of the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the 1830’s! He will bring to life bird behavior and world history as he saw
it in the early 1800s.
For younger students: (preschool and early elementary) John James Audubon’s Bird Tales – Hear the stories of Audubon’s youth,
his love for birds, his technique for painting them, and most importantly Audubon’s passion for science and field ecology. In his
travels Audubon frequently camped with Native Americans and will share Native folklore about birds, sing an eagle song, and explore the wild
world as he saw it 200 years ago.
And all programs come with grade level appropriate lesson plans:
Native Plants will be available for purchase.
