Limited in-person presentations will be offered for the 2021-2022 school year. Presentations can be booked on Mondays and Tuesdays. Presenters are fully vaccinated and will wear a mask dependent on the school's policy. Specimens will be disinfected between each presentation as well.  Presentations are FREE, fun and a great way to teach students about conservation.

We teach classes about waterfowl and the importance of the habitat they need to thrive. Through it all, we emphasize hands-on, interpretative learning that highlights respect, health and the sustainability of the outdoors.

Depending on the grade level and presentation, students could be learning about nests and nesting behavior. Or they could be learning about ducks by examining real skulls and feet. They could even be studying migratory behavior while examining wing and feather specimens.
