Massachusetts Audubon Society

Log Number: ARPML-250509-OMLS-22

The Massachusetts Audubon Society (Mass Audubon) will develop and implement a professional development (PD) training program for approximately 50 Mass Audubon educators working out of 19 nature centers and an art museum to deliver high quality, culturally responsive, environmental-focused STEM after school programs in high-need school districts. Once trained, these educators will work with schools across Massachusetts delivering approximately 54 different afterschool program series. The resulting programs provide outdoor nature programming facilitated by educators who have participated in special training to help with the social-emotional and academic recovery for students from communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
