The conference starts tomorrow!! And there are still lots of people to thank and acknowledge for their hard work and donations. Keep your eyes out for more updates and conference news on our Facebook page over the next few days!
Due to a generous donation from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, every participant to this year’s WAEE Fall Conference will receive a Pennington bird feeder and educational materials to provide citizen science opportunities through bird education.
Cornell Lab of Ornithology works hard to provide citizen science opportunities through their Bird Sleuth programs. BirdSleuth is an inquiry-based science curriculum that engages kids in scientific study and real data collection through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s exciting citizen science projects including eBird, Celebrate Urban Birds!, Project Pigeon Watch, and Project Feeder Watch. BirdSleuth provides educators with kits that:
- Encourage kids to answer their own questions about nature using the scientific process.
- Spend time outdoors, connecting with nature by focusing on the fascinating sights, sounds, and behaviors of birds.
- Motivate kids by the real-world importance of the data they enter online, which scientist use to understand and conserve birds.
- Highlights and engages kids in one or more citizen science projects
