A new, free education program presented in collaboration with Forsyth Audubon Society
PEA's newest in-classroom program teaches Elementary School students about the migration of the Wood Thursh, and instills important lessons in environmental conservation and protection.
During a one-hour, multi-media session specifically crafted to meet state curriculum standards for 4th graders, this program tells the amazing migration story of a Wood Thrush that traveled from Pilot Mountain, all the way to Belize, and back. Students learn about bird migration and related terminology and participate in reenacting a bird rescue.
Each student will take home a Kids' Bird Pack that includes:
Instructions on how to make your own bird feeder (includes small pack of bird seed)
Native Plants for Birds brochure
Pack of native plant seeds with directions for planting and care
Information about Forsyth Audubon and Piedmont Environmental Alliance
Teachers will be provided with follow-up project ideas and supporting resources for lasting positive impacts for birds and education for students including:
- Native plants for birds in school garden or landscape
- Nest boxes and monitoring (provided by Forsyth Audubon Society)
- Pen pal or Skype with the youth of Belize Audubon Society
