Creativity on the Fly~ Mobile Live Streaming Field Trip! Wednesday, March 9, 8AM-11AM.

Explore the wonderful world of birds and the habitats they share with us! Today we visit a unique restored wetland along the Santa Cruz River that stitches together an ancient avian flyway, and we’ll meet some of the local inhabitants.

Feeling inspired! Do you love to draw, sketch, paint, take photos or express your ideas artistically? Share your talents with the birds through “Creativity on the Fly”. Win prizes, reveal your talents to the public in a gallery showing, and inspire others to care for birds and habitat conservation.  Talk with your teacher to get more information!
