Education

Golden Gate Audubon’s environmental education programs provide unique opportunities for Bay Area residents–young and old alike–to learn about our local wildlife and the natural world.

Our monthly Speaker Series presentations feature fascinating presentations about natural resource issues, while our classes provide opportunities to learn about birds, wildlife, mushrooms, gardening, and more. Our school-based programs connect students with their local environment and with birds and other wildlife, while inspiring them to improve their academic achievement. They learn how respect for the natural world is related to respect for themselves and their community. They are also given skills to take action to protect the environment. We believe that only through education can our natural heritage be passed on to future generations.

Golden Gate Audubon provides many opportunities in San Francisco and the East Bay for people of all ages to discover the fascinating world of wildlife and natural habitats—from our own backyards to far distant continents.

Our monthly Speaker Series features slide lectures by experts in ornithology, conservation, eco-travel, and other topics. Programs are presented on both sides of the bay and allow the whole family to learn about birds, wildlife, and conservation.

Our classes on bird identification and related topics offer a wide variety of choices to birders of all levels. Join us and discover for yourself how much there is to learn and enjoy!

School-Based Programs

Our Eco-Education Program offers year-round, hands-on, environmental education to Title I (federally-funded) elementary school students and their community in East Oakland, North Richmond and Southeast San Francisco.  Golden Gate Audubon staff and volunteers work with teachers, students, and their families to explore and conserve local wildlife habitats throughout their local watershed—from the classroom and to the Bay and the ocean.

International Efforts

Golden Gate Audubon’s Latin America Committee works in the Bay Area and beyond to promote conservation and educational programs in Latin America that benefit birds and their habitats.

Educación Ambiental


Los programas educacionales ambientales de la organización GGA proveen la oportunidad única a la gente joven para aprender sobre la fauna del área de la bahía y el mundo natural.

Nuestros programas basados en el año escolar conectan a estudiantes con su ambiente local, los pájaros, y la otra fauna, mientras les inspiran a que mejoren su logro académico. Aprenden cómo el respecto por el mundo natural se relaciona con el respecto por sí mismos y su comunidad. También se les da la habilidad de tomar acción para proteger el ambiente. Creemos que solamente con la educación se puede pasar nuestra herencia natural a las generaciones futuras.

Programas Basados en el año escolar

Nuestro programa Eco-Education ofrece educación ambiental a lo largo de todo el año para estudiantes de la escuela primaria y a su comunidad en el este de Oakland, el norte de Richmond y el sudeste de San Francisco. El personal y los voluntarios de GGA trabajan con los profesores, los estudiantes, y sus familias para explorar y para conservar hábitos locales y fauna—desde el salón de clase, a los ríos, a la bahía y al océano.

Esfuerzos Internacionales

El comité de América latina de GGA trabaja en el área de la bahía y más allá promoviendo la conservación y los programas educativos en América latina que benefician pájaros y sus hábitos.
