Are you passionate about the health of your community’s natural resources? If so, consider learning more about becoming an Audubon Ambassador!

Audubon Ambassadors are a committed group of people passionate about the health and resiliency of their community who want to turn their values into action. You don't need to be an expert on birds – everyone is welcome! Ambassadors advocate for policies, laws, and practices that make the world sustainable for birds and people alike. Where birds thrive, people prosper.

This training will prepare you to become a climate advocate in your region! We will cover:

Being the messenger. Tips for having productive conversations on climate change, how to speak to representatives, and identifying stakeholders.

Being the solution. Changes we can make in our own homes, our backyards, and in our community that birds and people need for a safe, resilient, sustainable future.

Being an advocate. Why organizing matters, how to start a campaign, and concrete steps we can take today to be a voice for birds.

The program is free to attend but please register to help us plan. We hope to see you there!

For questions or more information please email Kelly Knutson, New York Field Organizer, at  This training is co-sponsored by Audubon New York, Four Harbors Audubon and Smithtown Historical Society.
