Mission or Broader Program Description: The Audubon Center’s mission is to inspire people to experience, understand and care for the local natural world. The nature-based education and community programs at Debs Park are designed to engage children and their families in the outdoor world, and to give them a personal stake in its protection by making environmental issues relevant to their lives. The Center is operated by Audubon California, a state field program of National Audubon Society, and is a vital part of Audubon’s national outreach initiative to engage Latino audiences. The Center, which is surrounded by predominately Latino neighborhoods, is a unique gathering place and dynamic focal point for outdoor recreation, environmental education and conservation action.
Impact: Our mission is to inspire people to experience, understand, and care for the local natural world. Volunteers are critical in carrying out this mission, and establishing sustainable open space for all to enjoy, experience, and learn from. Our work at Rio de Los Angeles State Park is important in expanding our work beyond the physical location of the Center, and engaging communities along the L.A. River.
