Join us for a morning of wild fun! Free play in nature helps kids to develop mind, body, and soul; it gives them the space to explore, take healthy risks, and form meaningful connections with the world around them. At Bird Conservancy, we know how critical nature play opportunities are for our littlest learners so we are launching Wild Wednesdays – a program where kids can be kids. They can examine a cool bug, build with sticks and logs, play in the mud, and go wherever their curiosity and imagination take them!

The pilot phase of this program will run for the next few months. During this time, we ask that you and your child(ren) participate in a short survey to help us make Wild Wednesdays the best it can be!

SIGN UP HERE!

Living on the Land

The past year of pandemic life has been a struggle for most us in many ways. For a field biologist who truly values time outdoors and in nature, the transition to telework and isolation is particularly impactful. But forced solitude leads to unexpected new perspectives, including a stronger connection to the land, nature, and community.

Beavers, Our Secret Superheroes

| Stewardship | No Comments

A chewed tree stump, an interwoven dam of sticks, logs, and mud, or a what might look like a pile of mud with branches and grasses are all signs you are in a beaver territory. And this territory is on its way to becoming a thriving part of our ecosystem!
