Flying WILD's focus is on migratory birds and is designed to inspire young people (grade 1-9) to discover more about the natural world. The program encourages students to get involved in activities that promote environmental learning and stewardship. The Flying WILD program places special emphasis on reaching urban schools with student populations that traditionally receive few opportunities to participate in environmental education initiatives. Flying WILD will have broad appeal in Saskatchewan Elementary Schools throughout the province as three of the four North American Flyways pass through Saskatchewan!
Our June 2021 virtual workshop will also include a birdwatching presentation by guest Ryan Clark on June 15. If you want to teach about birds but feel unsure about your own knowledge - there is support build into this presentation and workshop. If you know lots about birds, teaching kids about them is a seperate and new skill to acquire!
Course Dates: Tuesdays June 15 and 22. 7-9pm.
Cost: $40 for SaskOutdoors members / $50 for Non-Members.
Sessions must be attended live. After completion, participants will receive a certificate of completion and a copy of the Flying WILD Educators Guide mailed to them.
Flying WILD: An Educators Guide to Celebrating Birds is teacher friendly and has 43 complete lesson plans aimed at Middle Years students, divided between Teacher-Led, Volunteer-Led and Student-Led activities. A unique feature of the Flying WILD program is the service learning projects, which encourage students to become active stewards of migratory bird habitat locally and globally. Additionally, teachers, community members and students are encouraged to plan, organize and deliver a School Bird Festival to enhance community education about the barriers facing migratory birds and how we can help provide better habitat.
