This workshop is for teachers, educators or parents. Targeted for the middle-school audience, though widely adaptable, Flying WILD offers practical hands-on classroom and outdoor field investigation experiences connecting real-world experiences in bird biology, conservation and natural history.
Through activities involving language arts, social science and math experiences, coupled with community outreach and service learning applications, Flying WILD offers a whole-school approach to environmental education using birds as the focus.
The 6-hour workshop counts towards CEU credits and EE Criteria I credits. Homework option available. This workshop will be partially outdoors so please wear comfortable closed toed shoes and dress for the weather. Feel free to bring bug spray, a water bottle, binoculars (although some will be made available for people to use). Please bring a bag lunch.
