The National Audubon Society would like you to consider visiting one of their 100 nature centers and preserves for an end of summer trip or Labor Day weekend get-away. They are sweetening the deal with a chance to win a car.
If you pledge to take a trip or upload a picture of you and your family enjoying nature or a photo of a wildlife-studded landscape you will be entered to win a brand new Toyota Prius v.
Explore.org has expanded their live HD camera program to include two cameras that are following the lives of Atlantic Puffins or Fratercula arctica which means “little brother of the north” -which is probably how Peyton Manning refers to his brother Eli.
This is a chance to see Atlantic Puffins without having to leave your house via the magic of the Internet. One camera is providing a live feed of a Puffin Burrow or nest with a puffling and the second camera is the Puffin Loafing Ledge where the puffins hang out with other birds on a rocky plateau. The puffins live at the Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge 21 miles off the coast of Maine in the Atlantic Ocean.
Calling all birdwatchers! Mark your calendars because in one week, starting on December 14th, there is a chance to count birds to participate in Audubon’s 112th Annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC)! The CBC is an early-winter bird census that takes place all over the world.
The story behind the count dates back to 1900 when Frank Chapman, an ornithologist at the American Natural History Museum, decided rather than shooting birds and other animals to see which hunters could amass the biggest pile it would be more fun to simply count the birds. It was probably one of the earliest forms of modern conservation.
