Educational Activities

Classroom PresentationPresentations 

Using mounts from our extensive taxidermy collection, we illustrate topics such as Backyard Birds, Owls, Raptors, and Birds of the Shrub- Steppe.  Or we can fit presentations to what the teachers are presenting.

Presentations Offered
  • Informative Displays at Community Events
  • Classroom Talks
  • Speakers to organizations / clubs

Slide shows and Power Point presentations of bird photos are also available.

We can help prepare students for field trips to the Roderick Coler Audubon Nature Trail and to the Environmental Education Center at McNary National Wildlife Refuge.

We invite you to come along on a bird walk the first Saturday of each month on Bateman Island.

Let us know what would interest your group and we will see if we can come up with a program.
