Bird-friendly schools

Birds spark an undeniable wonder and curiosity about our natural world. One of the most exciting places to learn about birds is our own neighborhoods and schoolyards!

Our Bird-friendly School activities, programs, lessons and experiences align the seasonal changes of birds with the school year, supporting formal curricula, student inquiry and project-based activities.  We invite you to explore and learn about birds, participate in Citizen Science, and discover how to be ‘bird-friendly’ at school, home and in the community.  With thousands of schoolyards across Canada, a network of ‘Bird-friendly Schools’ can support safe and healthy habitats for birds, and inspire young stewards for birds and nature.
