What to expect during this Special Live Event

In this 45 minute program, students will build skills for spotting birds. Through observation, students will identify unique bird adaptations and feeding strategies in a variety of habitats. Take a close look at some of the Academy’s bird collections! Create bird field notebooks modeled on journals from Academy scientists! In no time, students will notice birds and their behaviors in their own backyards or right outside the schoolyard.

This program is interactive in nature! Students will have the opportunity to ask Academy Educators about their curiosities.

Students get to see and hear the Academy expert, and teachers will enter comments and questions into a text-based chat window.
