NewsSee what's happening around Audubon Community Nature Center.
Humans like to generalize and create trends. We sometimes live a little too much in this all-or-nothing, black-and-white, put-it-in-a-box kind of mindset. That can lead us to forget that when we are talking about any given plant or animal species, we are often talking about many, many individuals each making the decision that gives them and their offspring their best chance for survival.
It is easy to see how there is a kill or be killed world out there, but that is only one aspect of the world we live in. There is competition out there, but there is also more cooperation than you may think. Cooperation is essential in nature, it’s essential to human communities too.
February is both the end of winter and the beginning of spring. It is both the longest month, and the shortest. This is the time when the days actually feel longer, even though they’ve been getting longer for two months. This is when the primal part of ourselves senses the shift, hears the beckoning.
Every year Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) offers internships that help college-aged individuals discover their passion for environmental conservation and education.
Each year in early May, ACNC education staff and their guests hold a day-long Birdathon. The event raises $500 for this scholarship that is awarded to an area college-bound high school senior or college student who intends to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in an environmental or related field.
Animals are moving about every day, but not every day is a good time for tracking. It can be hard to recognize tracks on grass or in deep snow. But a light coating of fresh snow, mud, or wet sand is the perfect medium.
