Host a bird walk and introduce information about the importance of water to birds. We offer all of the details you need with our education materials. Some facts you might want to share include:

Bring small nets, magnifying lenses, and some bowls for your samples, so that everyone can have a close-up look. Expand your discussion to include which birds eat the insects that develop in water or the plants that grow in ponds and lakes.
