K-12 Classroom

 

We collaborate with local and regional schools to offer special classroom visits during which we provide an environment for learning about the biology and ecology of Montana’s birds. Here are some of the ways we reach out to area schools:

  • During the school year, we deliver our Bird’s-eye View Education Program to every 5th grade classroom in Missoula, Clinton, and Bonner on field trips with Clark Fork Watershed Education Program (this program is run by Dalit Guscio of UM.
  • Each year, we visit select classrooms by special invite to speak about topics that are relevant to current science curriculum.
  • Winter Wings Program: We visit 3rd graders in the Missoula area for lessons about Montana’s resident birds in winter, population dynamics, and winter physiology through a unique capture-recapture program where students assist in the field.
