Teachers, youth group leaders, and other educators are invited to attend a free workshop on bird conservation education in April.

The workshop is Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 4-7 p.m. at Lone Pine State Park in Kalispell. Space is limited and interested participants should reserve a spot with Dillon Tabish at (406) 751-4564 or [email protected].

Led by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks staff with the Flying WILD program, this informative and fun training is designed to provide K-12 educators with instructional tools and resources to assist in teaching youth about Montana’s avian fauna. 

Participants will be engaged in standards-based learning that incorporates science, math, and reading literacy skills. The workshop will introduce participants to the new Montana E-bird website and everyone will receive a copy of the Flying WILD teacher guide. Teachers will be eligible for three hours of OPI continuing education credits.

FWP received a generous donation from the Jean Smith Estate that is helping enhance bird conservation education across the state. The donation funded the development of birding trunks that were distributed statewide. Each trunk contains 20 pairs of binoculars. The trunks also contain copies of “Sibley’s Birds West” and “Flying WILD, An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds.”
