The Land Trust works with 2nd graders at Star Elementary to build an appreciation for the natural environment through bird watching.
Bird by Bird is a program organized by the US Fish & Wildlife Service and Idaho Fish & Game that brings birding to schools across the Treasure Valley to foster environmental stewardship in students. Facilitators visit Idaho schools to provide instruction and lessons to students while assisting them in cataloguing bird populations for Fish and Game data collection.
Bird by Bird provides children with the opportunity to take their classroom experiences home. Bird by Bird teaches students how and when to look for birds, and how to build and use bird feeders to attract and count bird species. Students enter their data to help Audubon keep track of bird populations.
The Land Trust participates in Bird by Bird, a program that brings the wonders of birding to schools throughout the Treasure Valley. Click here to learn more.
