Flying WILD introduces middle-school students to bird conservation through school bird festivals and hands-on classroom activities. Flying WILD helps teachers by providing interdisciplinary, standards-based lessons that engage students in real-world learning. By participating in Flying WILD activities, students will gain opportunities to learn and lead.
