Prairies…They’re for the Birds! A dynamic program about Wisconsin birds and their habitats
Have you ever seen a hawk eat birdseed? Why don’t robins swim? To answer these questions and more, register your 3rd and/or 4th grade classrooms now for our new fall program about Wisconsin birds and their habitats, including an in-depth tour of our prairie, an important habitat for birds and other wildlife. In keeping with our other school programs, we have incorporated a wide range of techniques to reinforce learning, including learning through play.
Students will explore the following topics:
- Four Wisconsin bird habitats from a bird’s point of view: forest, field (or prairie), marsh and pond.
- Migration; and bird adaptations to best fit their habitats and food sources.
- What a prairie is and its importance not only to birds, but also to Native Americans and early Wisconsin settlers.
