WIN is a partnership program initiated by BSBO that combines the resources of BSBO, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, and Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. The WIN program engages students K-12 in day-long, outdoor, hands-on experiences that provide tools to allow them to make educated decisions about conservation of natural resources.
During each visit, students are provided a “day in the marsh” experience that includes interdisciplinary lessons and activities with the research and education staff at BSBO, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, and Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Students visit both sites, which are within five minutes of each other, for 90-minute programs. At BSBO, students take part in the capture and banding of wild songbirds, assist with collecting and recording data, and release the birds back into the wild.
WIN Programs are FREE!
