Habitat at School
Tucson Audubon’s Habitat at School inspires student exploration and inquiry, builds responsibility and stewardship, and creates a lasting outdoor living laboratory that will enrich core curriculum for years to come.
Through the process of creating native wildlife habitat within their own schoolyard, students ignite their natural skills as scientists, detectives, designers, problem solvers, and communicators. Schoolyard habitats become peaceful refuges for students and faculty alike, and act as models to inspire other institutions and the surrounding community to build habitats of their own.
Tucson Audubon worked hand-in-hand with area schools to create schoolyard habitats at the following schools:
- Sam Hughes Elementary
- Changemaker High School
- Manzo Elementary
- The Gregory School
- Sunnyside High School
For more information about the Habitat at School Program, including information about funding and creating habitat at your school, contact Andy Bennett.
The creation of the habitat will provide a living classroom to all students. Its location is in the center of campus, will offer an opportunity for all students to see the evolution of our habitat. We hung a feeder out that my advisory group will be responsible for maintaining. Also, this one project has prompted other ideas as well, such as creating a butterfly habitat.Mickey Jacobs
