What’s Your Watershed Address? The Power (and Fun!) of School Outreach

Tracy Aviary inspires curiosity and caring for birds and nature through education and conservation not only on our grounds, but in schools throughout Salt Lake County! Through our suite of watershed-focused school outreach programs, we utilize hands-on and inquiry-based activities to build student interest in their local watershed. In this presentation, Tracy Aviary educators will outline the benefits and challenges of school outreach, demonstrate a portion of our most popular watershed-focused outreach program, and help participants brainstorm ways they can also reach out to schools in our community.
