6 cities join Flying WILD bird program for children

Communities in the East recently began participating in Flying WILD, a program from the Council for Environmental Education. The new partners include Bowling Green, Ky. (Western Kentucky University's Center for Environmental Education and Sustainability); Fort Wayne, Ind. (Science Central); Glen Rose, Texas (Fossil Rim Wildlife Center); Murfeesboro, Tenn. (Discovery Center at Murfee Spring); Newark, N.J. (Newark Museum); and Point Pleasant Beach, N.J. (Jenkinson's Aquarium).

Flying WILD focuses on three goals: using birds to teach core curriculum, providing teachers with educational tools and partnerships, and expanding International Migratory Bird Day celebrations. This year, IMBD falls on May 8; it typically occurs on the second Saturday of May.

Flying WILD's city partners include 27 other communities around the United States and in Canada. You can look for a local event here.
