The Bird School Project is an organization that uses outdoor experiential learning to inspire students and teachers to develop a scientific knowledge and appreciation of their local environment. We offer an internship experience unlike any other in the Monterey Bay. Working with a small team of outdoor educators you will get first hand experience facilitating wild birdwatching experiences for 5-8th grade students on their school campuses. In preparation for your time with students you will receive birdwatching mentorship from BSP staff and advanced training in outdoor field science instruction. Whether you are just interested in outdoor ed instruction, or looking to build your skills as an outdoor science educator, this is the internship for you!
About The Bird School Project
The Bird School Project offers 4-week Life Science Units focused on birdwatching in the schoolyard to students grades 5-8. Using core naturalist routines like field journaling, making direct observations, and developing and asking questions, we bring students on a learning journey that is accessible to them the moment they step outside. The Bird School Project works with 2,000 students in the Monterey Bay region each year. In addition, BSP aims to give train teachers in the facilitation of outdoor learning experiences for their classrooms and give teachers the support they need to spend science time outdoors.
