Building a Future for Communities and Wildlife
This project teaches students beginning with the 1st grade and up through 5th grade about the importance of environmental stewardship, and encourages critical thinking and problem-solving through a hands-on, project-based curriculum. This project uses live non-releasable birds or prey (raptors) in order to illustrate important ecological concepts. First graders in the program receive a classroom visit with live raptors. Second and third graders receive a classroom with live raptors and a conservation education visit by their fourth and fifth grade peers. The fourth grade program consists of three classroom visits and two field trips per classroom. The classroom visits will include discussion sessions, presentation of two raptors, and educational activities. Field trips focus on putting theory presented in the classroom into practice. Fifth graders select a school-wide conservation theme to study for the year and implement a conservation project in the local community.
