Partnership Highlight: Seward Park Audubon

Seward Park Audubon, located at Seward Park in South East Seattle, is an organization whose mission is “to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow.” Their center hosts programs to connect youth and adults to nature and wild spaces. Each year, through a partnership agreement with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seward Park Audubon provides free programming, and scholarships for those who cannot afford paid programs.
