BIRDING FROM THE CLASSROOM WORKSHOP

The Oklahoma Conservation Commission, Rogers County Conservation District and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation held a "Birding From The Classroom" workshop for  K-12 educators at the RSU Conservation Education Reserve in Claremore on January 15, 2015.  Several educators from around northeastern Oklahoma spent the day learning about birds.  This 6-hour workshop introduced methods for identifying birds and attracting birds to the schoolyard or outdoor classroom.  It also emphasized how to incorporate bird watching into daily curriculum. 

 

A second workshop will be held at the Oklahoma City Zoo on February 19, 2015.  For more information contact Karla Beatty at the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.

 



Mr. E. J. Snider, one of our long time associate board members,  participates in the Will Rogers Day Parade in downtown Claremore.

WILL ROGERS JUNIOR HIGH SCIENCE STUDENTS VISIT THE RESERVE

The Junior High Science students from Mrs. Skimbo's Science class walked the trails at the Reserve and studied a variety of subjects including soil sampling.  This simple procedure not only allowed a "hands on lesson" but later in the week when they began a lesson on ocean sampling they were better able to understand and visulaize the proceudure.
