For the Birds

For the Birds! is presented as either a 4 or 8 week multi-session program. Students learn about a variety of topics related to nature and the environment. One-hour lessons are taught by Audubon staff and volunteers. A journaling activity, including both art and writing, is connected to each lesson. The program culminates with a field trip. The study of birds and the myriad of colors in the avian world create a perfect bridge for a cross-curricular unit between the arts, language and science. The works of John James Audubon will also be featured.
