After attending Science in the Schoolyard, several science educators brought back information about citizen science to our staff and we began to explore our outdoor classroom for birds! This spring over 400 students have tracked through the trails of the outdoor classroom making observations and submitting data to Cornell’s eBird site. We have enjoyed seeing and hearing the changes to the forest throughout the spring. Both students and staff have enjoyed learning about the songs and flight of the birds we observe and we look forward to getting outdoors and collecting data.
