The central component of Flying WILD is encouraging students, teachers, and volunteers to implement school bird festivals. The guide contains exciting classroom and festival activities that help students lead hands-on experiments, create educational exhibits, stage performances, and present bird conservation projects. In addition, it offers information on accessing services, resources, and expertise for support at the festival, in structured classroom settings, or with service learning projects.
Flying WILD Educator Resources on Gulf Oil Spill
To help bird educators find useful information for their classrooms about the Gulf oil spill and birds, Flying WILD has complied this educator resource page that includes links to key Web sites and databases, educator tools, articles, and how to help.
