For those of you who are interested in becoming birding ambassador educators as part of MBC’s fall Community Outreach Initiative, here’s a workshop designed to help you in the classroom. Mary Mapel has been instrumental in getting DGIF to present this workshop for us locally. Thanks, Mary!
Celebrate birds with Flying WILD, a new conservation education guide featuring interdisciplinary hands-on classroom activities along with information for engaging students in a school wide bird festival. Key concepts include migration, adaptation, the importance of habitat, and bird conservation efforts. Designed originally for middle school teachers and students, the guide contains activities suitable for all grade levels.
All participants will receive a copy of the Flying WILD Activity guide and supplementary materials on Virginia birds.
