2024 Birding Institute

Use birds to engage students in science content

Ornithology, the scientific study of birds, provides real-world science applications for teachers and students. Observation and investigation skills learned during bird study enhance student motivation to experience science both indoors and outdoors and apply science concepts to the natural world.
Participants will:
  • strengthen their knowledge of local birds
  • connect science curriculum to ornithology content
  • examine tools and technology to be used with their students
  • earn 20 CEUs with an option for additional CEUs to be discussed on April 13th
  • develop ideas to use both indoor and outdoor spaces to lead bird lessons throughout the year connected to grade-level science curriculum


*A registration fee of $25 will hold your spot. This fee will be refunded upon completion of the workshop. Cancellations after April 7 are not refundable.
