National Audubon Society

National Audubon Society, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Toyota, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and NAAEE developed the Tools of Engagement: A Toolkit for Engaging People in Conservation. This toolkit is a step-by-step planning guide to help professionals working in conservation focus on their project goals and think about how to best engage people in the process.

NAAEE is proud to partner with Audubon, an international environmental organization that uses a powerful combination of science, policy, and education to protect and restore habitat for birds and other wildlife. Through its education and community conservation efforts, Audubon also embraces the importance of engaging diverse communities as a key strategy in ensuring sustainable environmental health.

This first-of-its-kind toolkit represents Audubon’s commitment to the importance of engaging people in meaningful ways in conservation, and the necessity of providing conservationists with the necessary tools to do that. In addition to the toolkit itself, supplementary training modules include Diversity and the Conservation Movement, The Case Study Collection, Influencing Conservation Action, and What’s the Story? Why Storytelling Matters. Find out more about the Toolkit.
