Bird and Squirrel Feeding Stations

Bird and Squirrel Feeding Stations

Even school yards with severely limited space have areas where feeding stations can be integrated. Feeders are an excellent way to bring birds and squirrels into view and involve students with wildlife by visual contact. These can incorporated into new learning sites on the school grounds or into existing shrubs and trees near the building.

HINT: Maintain a feeder effectively; adopt it to an appointed classroom or grade. Depending on the number of feeders, a classroom may maintain the entire station or a single feeder, or feeder maintenance may be rotated among grades or classrooms.

NOTE: Kits for students to assemble are available through KDWPT.
