Master Birder Program

The Atlanta Audubon Master Birder Program is a unique way for birders, beginners and beyond, to learn from local birding and ornithological experts and become involved with Atlanta Audubon. Offered each fall, the Master Birder program consists of a 6-week intensive course in birding, ornithology, and conservation integrated with field trips. Graduates of the course commit to annual volunteer activities and are offered special workshops, field trips, and discounts. Learn more on the Master Birder page.


Professional Development

Atlanta Audubon is proud to offer its own curriculum, Learning About Birds (LAB), and various options for professional development for formal classroom teachers and informal educators working with students in grades PreK-12. LAB lessons and activities are aligned with Georgia's science learning standards. Learn more on our For Educators page.
