While we are practicing social distancing and staying at home, please check our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social media channels for updates on our staff's work in the field and for resources to help you connect with nature virtually. We've also got plenty of lovely bird photos to give you that #JoyOfBirds.
State staff members are adapting to the new socially distant environment by continuing their education mission in the virtual world:
Audubon has compiled on one page a useful set of activities and educational resources to help kindle in kids a love of birds and nature. It's also refreshed each week with a new theme. You can find that page here. A Spanish version can be found here. (La página en español se encuentra aquí.)
We have tips, too, on how to be a better and more mindful backyard birder. If you're feeling better about yourself after scanning the backyard for that Carolina Wren or Northern Cardinal, there's a reason for that. Check out this article on the mental health boost you get from birding.
And click here for a sneak peek at our Texas Women in Conservation Luncheon, featuring the 2020 Terry Hershey Awards, scheduled for Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
For further birdy distractions here is a beautiful page filled with Audubon’s favorite bird photos, videos and stories.
