Bird Banding Field Trip

4th grade attended a wonderful field trip hosted by the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. We took a bus to Chadron State Park and met up with Chaley Jensen, the Nebraska Wildlife Education Coordinator. Chaley and her assistant took us for a walk showing the students how to net birds, how to use binoculars, and then how they process, band, and release the birds. This was an extremely informative trip and was enjoyable for all. The 4th grade received a grant to help us learn and build an ecosystem that is friendly to our community and will help beautify our school. We are looking forward to working with Chaley in the future!
