Audubon Rockies Award Winning Community Naturalists are responsible for working with local community groups, school systems, Audubon chapters and other organizations to coordinate and deliver the Audubon Rockies education and outreach programs at the local level.Â Community Naturalists translate Audubonâ€™s conservation message through a variety of educational programs reaching the local classrooms, family and adult audiences.Â Audubon feels this community outreach is extremely valuable.Â Todayâ€™s generation, raised on computers and video games, is offered few opportunities to experience or connect with the outdoors.Â Studies in the past 10 years show that nature-based education enhances attention spans and creativity, develops critical thinking and decision-making skills, and improves test scores (Richard Louv, author of Last Child In The Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature Deficit Disorder).
