Audubon Society educators can offer professional development on a variety of topics to support teachers’ efforts to bring students outside for science and other cross-curricular lessons.

A variety of "Prop Boxes" are available for teachers to loan out.  Each box was developed by naturalists trained in education and includes materials that enable teachers to extend their own curriculum.  These Teacher Prop Boxes contain items such as natural history biofacts, books, models, curricula ideas, background information and much more.

All prop boxes require a $25 deposit and have a loan period of up to 4 weeks for $5 per week.
