Earn your Wings — the Audubon Ambassador Program is open to anyone 18 years and older who is curious to learn more about the environment. Our May session spotlights South Florida’s imperiled Pine Rocklands. Learn more about conservation efforts to protect this unique habitat and the rare butterflies that live there from Environmentally Endangered Lands Program Natural Resources Manager Joy Klein and North American Butterfly Association Miami Blue Chapter Vice President Dennis Olle — both of whom are TAS Advisory Board members. Explore a Pine Rockland habitat and tour the Doc Thomas House with resident TAS Historian Dan Jones.

The Audubon Ambassador Program is a series of workshops and field trips designed to make you a more engaged, educated and effective advocate conservationist. Learn from leaders in their fields and become a strong advocate for the water we drink, the air we breathe and the habitat that nurtures, shelters and sustains our region’s birds and other wildlife. You’ll come away knowing more about South Florida ecosystems, environmental challenges, sea level rise and hurricane resilience issues — and, most important, practice making a difference. Talks on issues will be followed by advocacy exercises. Field trips bring each month’s classroom discussions to life.
