The Hawks Meet a Hawk
Something magical happened recently in first grade: live animals in the classroom! Our First Grade Hawks students enjoyed a visit from the Wildcare organization and got to see up close an American kestrel, a northern spotted owl and, of course, a red-tailed hawk.
Their visitors were two naturalists from Wildcare, who talked to the students about the adaptations of these animals. They also described the plight of the northern spotted owl, a threatened species because of habitat loss and competition from the barred owl.
Based in Marin County, Wildcare advocates for wildlife for a sustainable world, and actively pursues its mission through nature education, wildlife medicine, advocacy, and community outreach.
