Chatauqua refers to an adult education movement in the United States that was highly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The movement provided education that was combined with entertainment in the form of lectures, plays, and clubs. The movement was inspired and modeled after activities at the Chautauqua Institution of western New York. The Chautauqua Bird and Tree Club referred to on this pin is today known as the the Chautauqua Bird, Tree, & Garden Club. The club continues to actively promotes the conservation and expansion of wildlife and plants among the Chautauqua Institution.
