Songbirds, Science and Outdoor School 

 


                          
 

Siskiyou Field Institute provides this place-based education program teaching awareness of birds and habitat conservation through interactive classroom science lessons and outdoor learning experiences.

Students begin the program in the classroom with a presentation from an SFI Youth Education Instructor, where students will learn bird adaptations and the relationships between birds and their habitats through the scientific inquiry. Following the classroom visit students will spend a one day field trip, or a two-day and one-night visit to Deer Creek Centerís (DCC) impressive 850-acre facility.


In the Field, Students will  

  • Discover three unique habitats at Deer Creek Center's 850-acre campus.
  • Conduct educational field investigation with their field journals using scientific inquiry.
  • Spend a morning using binoculars in the field, identifying birds and listing bird species found on the campus.
  • Spend the night at Deer Creek Center engaging in group games, hikes, fire ecology, 
    storytelling, evening campfire, and team building.
