Combatting climate change in Baltimore

Success! Audubon’s Green Leaders, beside thousands of Marylanders and hundreds of organizations, marched to ban fracking in Maryland. Thanks to this and other efforts, our elected leaders passed the bill! This is an important step for the future of our birds, other wildlife, and Maryland communities.

Green Leaders have a new action project in the name of birds! With Audubon, these middle school students build leadership and communication skills to share an urgent message about birds and climate change. Recently, they engaged their multicultural, intergenerational neighbors in a climate awareness art project at Patterson Park’s annual Día del Niño. Hundreds of participants from the community signed a banner with their painted handprints on behalf of protecting Baltimore’s birds. The student-designed banner, featuring a witty call to action and a Baltimore oriole, a species threatened by climate change, can be found hanging at Patterson Park Audubon Center, on the corner of Baltimore St. and Linwood Ave.

Join Green Leaders in combatting climate change through these three main action pieces:

1. Creating bird-friendly habitat.

2. Rethinking energy usage at home, work, and school.

Check out this list of 10 easy steps you can take to protect our climate for birds and people.

3. Advocating for a healthier climate for future generations.
