Project Description: The Bird School Project (BSP) aims to cultivate awareness, knowledge, and love for nature, particularly among youth in urban areas. This project was inspired by the ubiquitous nature of birds, BSP chose to engage students by visiting schools and taking students outside, right on their school campus to discover the local avifauna first hand. This project provides bird walks and experiential science units to 5th-8th grade students in the Monterey Bay region. BSP is further expanding their impact by providing programming in underserved districts and adding professional learning support for classroom teachers who are passionate about developing routines that support connection with nature and scientific learning in the outdoors.
