Birds in Schools

What is Birds in Schools?

Birds in Schools is an environmental education project designed to engage primary school students in citizen science through monitoring birds. On our online e-learning platform teachers can access an Australian curriculum teaching resource (with 10 leesons and accompanying worksheets) that builds knowledge and skills across science, maths and english and gets students outdoors and connecting with nature.

Birds in Schools engages students in the scientific process through investigation and monitoring the birds and habitat of their school grounds. Students use their own observational skills and ideas to develop and implement action plans to help their local bird life. Action plans may include planting native plants, installing nest boxes or bird baths, or delivering education campaigns in their school or local neighbourhood.

Birds in Schools is supported by generous donors including the Dennoch Fund, a sub-fund of Australian Communities Foundation as well as Penrith Lakes Development Corporation, local BirdLife Australia branch volunteers and local councils.
