Kids & Birds
Kids & Birds is an environmental education program for students in grades one through nine. Since 2012, CCFC in partnership with Cornell Lab of Ornithology has been teaching kids about birds. This program focuses on schools within two Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in the cloud forest region of the central highlands. Kids & Birds uses Cornell’s BirdSleuth curriculum, "Aves en mi Mundo" a ten lesson unit which introduces kids to conservation biology, citizen science and ecology through birds.
In 2016, CCFC hosted 960 primary school students on its campus, schools arriving almost every week of the school year. Arriving on Monday and leaving on Thursday, CCFC provides room and board, teachers, curriculum and one of the most amazing out door class rooms in the world.
Sponsor a week of Kids & Birds and help kids refocus on the wonderful world around us.
