About this Event

This free 2020-2021 course will empower you to become a lifelong champion for birds, other wildlife and South Florida's natural places. Participants will receive advocacy training and come away armed with in-depth knowledge about Everglades Restoration, Smart Growth and Biscayne Bay. The program’s goal is to empower graduates to activate their “Tropical Audubon Ambassador” education on behalf of South Florida ecosystems.

Over the course of the 7-month Tropical Audubon Ambassador Program, students will learn about the most pressing threats to South Florida’s environment, how to engage in the Miami-Dade County civic process, and how to participate in effective environmental advocacy campaigns. Spring field trips (subject to COVID protocols) will connect Tropical Audubon Ambassador students to local environmental communities and expand their understanding of the ecosystems Tropical Audubon Society (TAS) works to protect. Aspiring Tropical Audubon Ambassadors will matriculate with a network of like-minded environmental advocates and participate in deep-dive Q&As with regional experts in their fields. Additional benefits include access to a Facebook group, a monthly advocacy newsletter, action alerts on critical conservation issues, an online toolbox of resources and leadership development opportunities.The 2020-2021 series is open to anyone 18 and older, as well as to past Tropical Audubon Ambassador graduates. All participants are required to first enroll in a “Civics” webinar series then choose up to three 5-part webinar “tracks” of interest — Biscayne Bay, Smart Growth and/or Everglades — and cap the program with a “Campaigns” webinar series.
