Birding to Awaken Wonder Fundraiser

Birding to Awaken Wonder is a fundraiser for bird education put on by the Woodleaf Legacy Birding Team for Shady Creek Outdoor School. The goal of our team is to see 2015 bird species around the world in 2015.FullSizeRender

Our birding team is made up of former Woodleaf Outdoor School and Shady Creek Outdoor School naturalists who have a passion for birding and want to contribute to bird education in California. The Woodleaf Legacy Birding Team will be looking for different birds throughout the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Africa in hopes of reaching or surpassing our goal of 2015 species of birds.

Thousands of Central Valley students participate in Shady Creek’s bird education program each year. While at outdoor school, these students see our raptors up close, they develop their own questions about birds in our bird classroom, and they experience the excitement and wonderment in birding.

Shady Creek Outdoor School’s bird education program has been using the same materials for the past 20 years. We are hoping to update our educational resources so we can continue to provide a top-notch experience for the students who visit.

Supporters of Birding to Awaken Wonder would contribute a certain amount of money for every new bird species that is seen by the team. For example, if a person donated $ .01 per bird, and we meet our goal of 2015 species, that person would donate $20.15 to the program. Donations are tax deductible.

Pledge forms can be downloaded on the Shady Creek Outdoor School website, or you can request a pledge form by emailing Follow the Woodleaf Legacy Birding Team’s progress on Facebook by searching Birding to Awaken Wonder. You can also find us on Twitter@Woodleaflegacy.
