Flying WILD, the newest program of the Council for Environmental Education, introduces students in the upper elementary and middle school grades to bird conservation. This occurs through a standards-based classroom activity guide and through environmental stewardship projects. Flying WILD encourages schools and nature centers to work closely with conservation organizations, community groups, and businesses involved with birds to implement school bird festivals – events which students take a leading role in teaching their classmates and community about migratory birds.
A national network of urban-based City Partners provides educators with Flying WILD training and materials, including the program guide, Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds.
The Council for Environmental Education is a nationally recognized leader in environmental education, providing programs and services that promote responsible stewardship of natural resources.
