Our teacher programs provide an opportunity for formal and nonformal educators to connect with conservation education curricula related to birds and the environment in the unique setting of the National Aviary. Our goal is to help teachers create the most meaningful programs and lessons for their students, while learning about the birds and conservation programs of the National Aviary. Every offering provides educators with the chance to meet live birds from our collection, experience our unique walk-through exhibits, and interact with their peers in education.
Our 2017 offerings currently include:
