On May 22, some of the Kalamazoo County's 5th graders spent the day outside at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary learning about Conservation. They built native bee houses, played a game to illustrate how invasive species compete with native species, identified household hazardous waste, learned how to plant a tree, found aquatic macroinvertebrates, observed bald eagles and discussed bioaccumulation, and watched a demonstration of stormwater runoff.
"Every station was very interactive and engaged the students!" - participating teacher
KCD would like to thank our partners Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, MSU Extension Kalamazoo 4-H, Kalamazoo County Drain Commission Office, BCK-CISMA, Kalamazoo County Household Hazardous Waste, the Farm Bureau, and the KCD volunteers in providing support and educational activites for the students.
Support for this program was provided by a grant from the Kalmazoo Community Foundation.
