With support from NSERC PromoScience, Birds Canada has been working with scientific collaborators and educators to bring the exciting research of Motus into the classroom.
Bird Studies Canada’s Schoolyard Bird Blitz is an annual bird count taking place in schoolyards each May. Students across Canada explore their schoolyard, identify and count their local birds, and share their findings. Check out the highlights from the 2019 event!
Bird Studies Canada invites your students to explore the diversity of birds in your neighbourhood by participating in the Schoolyard Bird Blitz this spring! In addition to getting outside and learning about local bird life, students are ‘scientists’ responsible for conducting a survey of birds at their school and reporting the observations to Bird Studies Canada.
On a sunny day in October, 47 students and 4 teachers from Ecole Calixte F. Savoie in Saint-Anne de Kent, NB got some hands-on experience in helping and learning about nature. They joined Denise Maillet of Bird Studies Canada, as well as Denise Roy and Jennifer White of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), to clean up a section along Cap Lumiere beach.
Get students outside and learning about local birdlife with Bird Studies Canada’s educational programs and activities.
