  • Involve local schools/teachers in a seasonal challenge or quest by creating a container garden for the birds, hosting a scavenger hunt in the park with or without binoculars, writing themed essays, creating a photo journal of local green spaces, or collecting and submitting data using Celebrate Urban Birds on one day with lots of people or many times in one day, or over many days.
  • Highlight existing conservation work and habitat at the park
  • Select children/classrooms to honor: Top Birder, Best Bird Scrapbook, Learned most bird sounds, etc.
