     Learn Bridges to Birding

    Every spring the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge brings over 1000 5th grade students to Doeskin Ranch to learn about Environmental Education.

    The two programs (Bridges to Birding & Going Buggy) adhere to the TEKS guidelines and coordinate with classroom curriculum.

    The children visit the Refuge during the week (Monday-Friday) in April and May.  Some classes may be added in March.  You as a volunteer would be expected to be at Doeskin Ranch form 8:30 am until about 1:00 pm.

    We will be training new volunteers to teach these classes in February.  We would expect a commitment to Balcones Refuge of at least one day this spring.

    The training will be held at the Flying X Ranch Tuesday, February 16 (Bridges to Birding) and Thursday, February 18 (Going Buggy).  The training will run from 9 am until noon.  Snacks and water will be provided.  It is expected that this will count as Advanced Training for Master Naturalists.
