Audubon Camp in the
Rockies Programs Available This Summer
Audubon Wyoming is pleased to announce two camps in the Rockies
this summer. The first session, called Field Ornithology, will take
place from June 29–July 5, 2003. The theme of this
class is, “Biology Begins With Birds.” This field camp
experience is intended for beginning and intermediate birders, educators
and resource managers and stresses avian identification outdoors.
The AVES method of bird identification was developed by Gene Wilhelm,
former Vice President of Education, National Audubon Society. The
AVES method uses six keys in field identification: eye, ear, behavior,
habitats, field marks and ecology during a period of intense but
fun and exciting birding with experts.
The second session will run from July 6–July 12,
and is titled, “Earth Literacy.” The theme of this session
is, “Restoring Connections: Humans Within Nature.” Natural
history and the local environment once provided the basic foundation
from which the education discipline emerged. Restoring those connections
is what environmental education today is about and what makes it
so compelling for cross-curricula teaching in an outdoors setting.
This week long experiential session is primarily intended for science
and non-science educators who are either already incorporating environmental
education into their lesson plans or would like to.
