This annual Spring program, running February to June, allows North American students to participate in the journeys of a dozen migratory species that are tracked each spring. Students share their own field observations with classrooms across the Hemisphere. In addition, students are linked with scientists who provide their expertise directly to the classroom. Several migrations are tracked by satellite telemetry, providing live coverage of individual animals as they migrate. As the spring season sweeps across the Hemisphere, students note changes in daylight, temperatures and all living things as the food chain comes back to life. Schools who sign up have the option to participate in online events and activities. Starting in August, teachers and students will be interested in the Journey South program which has students describing their observations of migratory birds in their journey south. These programs focus in on seasonal changes in habitats all over North America as well as migratory birds that inhabit the area. Complete program details are found on site. Registration is required.
