We want you to go wild – right in your backyard! Join the Atlanta Audubon Society to learn the principles and elements your yard needs to attract and provide shelter for all kinds of wildlife. By building a more stable, diverse system, you’ll be able to enjoy watching birds and critters while helping improve your local ecosystem.

We’ll cover everything from structures and feeders to the native plants that attract birds and wildlife. Shelter, food, water and nesting sites will be addressed and handouts and an informational poster will be provided.

After implementing the lessons you learn in this workshop, you can apply to the Atlanta Audubon Society for Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Certification for your property – and, if registered, proudly display a sign showing your dedication to providing a home for wildlife.


About the Instructor:
The Atlanta Audubon Society is dedicated to protecting Georgia’s birds and the habitats that sustain them through education, conservation and advocacy. An important part of Atlanta since 1926 (when it was the Atlanta Bird Club), the Atlanta Audubon Society offers amazing resources and education in bird watching, population counting, and habitat protection.

Cindy Mayer graduated from the University of Georgia (B.S. in Zoology) and Georgia State University (M.S in Environmental Biology). She taught science at Kennesaw State University, Georgia State University, and DeKalb Community College.  Cindy is an Atlanta Audubon Society Master Birder and can often be found leading bird walks, presenting education programs, writing articles, and otherwise lending a helping hand at AAS.  She is the chair of the AAS Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary Certification Program.
