In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and visitors and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are closing the Blair Audubon Center, boardwalk, trails, and outdoor areas, and canceling all public programming, until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation with direction from the State of Florida.
Specialized 2nd grade Insect Adventure and 5th grade Wild Florida Adventure curriculum programs were developed in coordination with Collier County teachers to include classroom lessons, field exploration, and Educator workshops. Both are aligned to the Florida Sunshine State Standards. Individuals, foundations and businesses support tuition costs through sponsorship.
Our innovative Partner Educator Program provides orientations, workshops and continued support to enable elementary teachers and university faculty and student naturalists to serve as field educators for visiting classes. Partner Educators receive membership benefits and recognition in our annual report.
Over 150 Partner Educators are currently trained and delivering programs in coordination with Corkscrew naturalists.
