Kitsap Audubon Scholarships

The Kitsap Audubon Society is dedicated to environmental education, nature study, the preservation of wildlife and habitat, and the enjoyment and appreciation of our natural areas.

To that end, we believe in supporting those students in our community that are working towards an academic degree in a field related to Kitsap Audubon’s mission, such as environmental science, forestry, marine or wildlife biology.

Audubon Adventures

Members of Kitsap Audubon have an opportunity to make a difference in classrooms throughout the county by sponsoring an “Audubon Adventures” classroom kit. “Audubon Adventures” is an environmental education program, produced by the National Audubon Society aimed at fourth and fifth graders. Designed by professional environmental educators, the “Audubon Adventures” program presents basic, scientifically accurate information about birds and other wildlife, habitats and conservation. The material meets core elementary curriculum standards in Earth Science, Language Arts and Civics. “Audubon Adventures” comes as a classroom kit serving up to 32 students. Each kit contains a teacher’s manual and covers 4 separate topics with classroom hand-outs. KAS supplies these kits, free of charge, to subscribing teachers in the Kitsap County public schools. Last year KAS supplied 40 classrooms with “Audubon Adventures” kits. The cost of each classroom kit is $ 45.65 ($38.50 plus $7.15 postage). This is a major item in the KAS annual budget. Your contribution would help us defray the cost of this program. You may contribute any amount to the general “Audubon Adventures” program or sponsor your child’s or a grandchild’s classroom or a classroom of your choice! To make a contribution, make checks payable to Kitsap Audubon Society and mail to KAS, PO Box 961, Poulsbo, WA 98370 and specify that your contribution is for “Audubon Adventures” Should you have any questions contact Chazz Hesselein, Audubon Adventures Coordinator, 360-633-0486 or chazz@hesselein.com
