Audubon Outdoors Nature Discovery Journey's

ISC-Audubon is excited to announce the launch of Audubon Outdoors Nature Discovery Journey’s – Costa Rica Adventures!

ISC-Audubon Executive Director, R. Eric Dodson announced today that a partnership has been created between ISC-Audubon and a Costa Rica-based Eco-travel company called Elemento Natural to offer exclusive Audubon Outdoors Nature Discovery Journey’s in Costa Rica.

Dodson said, “We believe that it is very important to do whatever we can to help people re-connect with nature. We can’t think of another place on the Planet that offers more than Costa Rica as a destination to fill the senses of travelers with nature!” 

Elemento Natural is a company with years of experience leading such adventures and in addition, Dodson said that the company embodies sustainability in the fabric of their business culture. This is even reflected further by the fact that Elemento Natural General Manager, Roberto Lizano has also been named Costa Rica Regional Representative of ISC-Audubon.

The first Audubon Outdoors Nature Discovery Journey is scheduled for September 27 – October 4, 2013 leaving from San Jose, Costa Rica. The September 27 Nature Discovery Journey will have a major focus on becoming “Up Close and Personal with the Whales and Dolphins of Costa Rica!” The 8 day Costa Rica Adventure costs $1,400, including hotel accommodations and meals, and the trip will be chocked full of fun and learning opportunities about the most biologically diverse country on Earth!

Planning a Sustainable Franklin Tennessee

Central Franklin PlanningIn early June 2009, through a series of daylong charrettes culminating in a public meeting, Audubon Lifestyles assisted LandDesign, city stakeholders and the Steering Committee for Franklin, Tennessee to develop a  plan that is intended to serve as a unified guide, and central coordinating mechanism for the future of Central Franklin that:

  • emphasizes the interrelated nature of Central Franklin’s diverse neighborhoods and its historic commercial core as a key to its long-term success and vitality;
  • synthesizes and builds upon the previous work efforts and successes of the City, the stakeholders and numerous organizations already active in Central Franklin;
  • complements the citywide recommendations of the Central Franklin Area Plan;
  • focuses on broad issues as they pertain to all of Central Franklin, not just specific geographic areas within it; and
  • perhaps most importantly, identifies the necessary “next steps” the community must take in order to achieve the implementation of its goals for Central Franklin

The Central Franklin planning area encompasses nearly 4,000 of the City of Franklin’s 18,726 acres and includes the downtown, or 15- Block Area, as well as many of the City’s historic residential neighborhoods. The importance of the Central Franklin as the “core” of the community was recognized as most important, and the character of Central Franklin is what was used as the model that should affect and influence the vision of the citywide plan, and upon which Franklin’s future as a city should be based upon. 
The Audubon Lifestyles team is proud to have been apart of this process, and is excited to continue to work with the City of Franklin, Tennessee as they move towards becoming more sustainable.
