Albany Avenue Elementary School students were treated to an interactive animal science program recently by workers from the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center.
The students learned about various birds by engaging in many hands-on activities, including identifying common species, listening to bird calls, handling artifacts and touching feathers.
The Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center, located in Oyster Bay, was established in 1923. Its 12 acres constitute the first Audubon Songbird Sanctuary in the nation. Today, it is a vibrant resource offering a wide variety of activities, including environmental education, wildlife research, and conservation advocacy.
