For almost 15 years, Seattle Audubon has provided the Finding Urban Nature (FUN) program for free at B. F. Day School and other schools around Seattle.
The FUN program introduces 3rd and 4th grade students to producers, consumers, and decomposers in their schoolyard habitat and how they depend on each other to survive. Volunteer guides take a small group of up to six students outside to learn about their schoolyard habitat, first hand. Each classroom receives four different lessons in the fall and four more in the spring.
This year, B.F. Day is a looking for some volunteers to help with the program. Volunteers do not need any previous experience and training will be provided.
You can learn more about the program at their website. To find out how to become a volunteer, email the Elementary School Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
