6-12th Grade Program Descriptions

Program Title Description

Walking Down a Food Chain

Together we will construct a live food chain as your students meet a raptor, reptile, amphibian, arachnid, and an insect. Along the way we discuss how these animals' lives are connected and learn about the delicate balance that allows them to survive both individually and together as wildlife who share a habitat.

Hunters of the Sky

It’s all about survival! Three engaging raptors (such as a hawk, owl, falcon) will visit your site to demonstrate and model their amazing survival characteristics and techniques. Hands-on explorations of feathers, skulls, and other bird parts provide a stimulating introduction to the Hunters of the Sky. 

Understanding Owls

Our owls will engage, delight, and educate your students during a personal visit to your classroom. Classification, conservation, and survival techniques are just a few of the topics we will explore by observing live birds. Students will be amazed as they discover what life is like for a nighttime predator through hands-on activities.
Nature's Recyclers While meeting live roaches, rodents and a turkey vulture, your students will learn the important role that scavengers and decomposers play in our everyday lives. Meeting these underappreciated recyclers will prove to be an experience that you and your students will not forget.
