Speaker: Uta Meyer, Youth Program Manager, Audubon Arkansas

Topic: Connecting kids to nature

Audubon Arkansas connects kids to nature through a variety of outdoor and classroom activities at the Little Rock Audubon Center and other natural areas. Throughout the year, Audubon Arkansas serves students from Pulaski County and Little Rock School Districts, as well as after-school and home-school groups, boy and girl scout troops, and more. Last year, over 2500 students participated in Audubon programming. Come hear how Audubon teaches kids about birds and the environment. You might just learn something.

She received her B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Central Arkansas in 2011 and her M.A. from New York University in Environmental Conservation Education in January 2013.
