BIRD ENCOUNTERS

       

 EXPLORATION HIKES

 

Exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development! It is also a proven therapy for Attention Deficit Disorder, Vitamin D Deficiency, childhood obesity, and depression. In addition, high-quality outdoor education has been shown to improve standardized test scores and classroom performance by developing skills in: problem-solving, critical thinking, decision-making, and creativity. 

Here at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary, we pride ourselves on our exceptional educational offerings overseen by professional Life Science educators. Our staff have extensive experience with children aged Pre-School through grade 12 as well as with individuals who have special needs. We also happily cater our programming to align with topics you are covering in the classroom. Please see our field trip options below and call us to let us know how we can provide that element of outdoor enrichment for your students. 

The Ohio Bird Sanctuary is a certified Wild School Site
