Our Partnership: The Audubon Center at Debs Park has worked with Anahuacalmecac on a number of projects and events surrounding advocacy, youth leadership, habitat restoration, and more. In 2019, the Center traveled with 20+ students and staff from Anahuacalmecac to Sacramento for the Audubon California Advocacy Day, where the students were able to meet with our local representatives and speak on issues relevant to their school and community. Students from Anahuacalmecac also participated in the Audubon Youth Leaders Plants for Birds Summer Internship Program, where they learned the basics of habitat restoration and bird conservation. Our most recent project involves revitalizing and restoring the Native American Terrace Garden, located in the El Sereno side of Debs Park.
