Learn all about bees, the critters responsible for pollinating much of the food we eat. Observe the honeybee hive in the nature center. Attend a short lecture on bees and learn which bees are social and which are solitary. Capture and record sightings of bumble bees found at the nature center. Learn how to get your students involved in the Pacific Northwest Bumble Bee Atlas (for spring/summer 2024). Receive a Google sites link with bee lessons and activities. If time, possible Stream Walk and learn about educational trunks available for check out.

The World Center for Birds of Prey, located in Boise, Idaho, is the headquarters of The Peregrine Fund. The campus houses our administration building, breeding facilities for critically endangered species, the Archives of Falconry, Velma Morrison Interpretive Center, and trails through the sagebrush steppe overlooking Boise and the Owyhee Mountains. Guests stand in the shadows of California Condors as they get a glimpse into the lives of the largest breeding flock, have a taste of the traditions and passion of falconry and ornithology that saved the Peregrine Falcon, and are invited to get nose-to-beak with eagles, falcons, hawks, owls, and vultures from around the world representing conservation projects in over 27 countries. Come prepared to fall in love with raptors in both outdoor and indoor exhibits.

Participants for this “workshop on the move” at IBG will experience our 15-acre living museum through a short tour, practice strategies to engage learners in new ways with STEAM curriculum, and learn about amazing plant and animal adaptations for the shrub-steppe ecosystem. This workshop will occur outside as we will be moving around the cultivated garden spaces, sturdy shoes are needed.
Note: The distance from the admission kiosk to the classroom and the more cultivated, shaded portion of the Garden is 212 yards-long. This includes a 24 yards-long ramp that meets ADA slope requirement. Please let us know of any accessibility concerns prior to the event date (contact info@idahobotanicalgarden.org). There are areas of the garden where the path material is more gravely, areas where the sloped path is lawn, and in those cases we have alternative routes available that could be used.

Do the Math - Save a Life
This field trip will educate math and science teachers about how math and science are used at Idaho Transportation Department to save lives. Participants will learn about open source data science lessons developed by Idaho Algebra 1 teachers with ITD staff. The lessons are designed to provide high school freshman opportunities to explore the ITD crash data dashboard. This field trip will include a crash demonstration and presentation on how crash detectives use math and science to investigate crashes. Included will be 4 demonstrations that will all show how math is used in bridge engineering, the chemistry testing lab, Aeronautics, and in a crash demonstration/reconstruction.

First Green is an innovative environmental and STEM education outreach program using golf courses as environmental learning labs. Golf Course Superintendents and/or local golf course representatives host students on field trips where students can test water quality, collect soil samples, identify plants, design plantings, assist in stream bed restoration, and be involved in the ecology and environmental aspects of the golf course. On this field trip, we will demonstrate a few labs so you will be able to experience firsthand what your students will see when they visit a golf course.Read more: https://www.thefirstgreen.org/#ixzz80f4cuGfT

This field trip will focus on climate science activities for your classroom. Visit The WaterShed to hear about our transformation to a water and climate science center. Take a quick tour of the education center or water renewal facility (your choice) to learn about our resources for teachers. We’ll also present several hands-on climate activities related to greenhouse gases that can be replicated in the classroom. Participants will take home a Project WET Climate, Water and Resilience curriculum guide.
