Black Hill Discovery Center – Flying WILD City Partner

Black Hill Discovery Center is a
Flying WILD City Partner!

Flying Wild is an internationally recognized education program that engages students in bird biology, conservation, and stewardship. Special emphasis is placed on creating an approach that is readily adaptable for urban schools, often with under-served students who traditionally receive few opportunities to participate in environmental education initiatives. Black Hill is the second City Partner in the state, alongside the Ward Waterfowl Museum in Salisbury, Maryland. Flying WILD relies on a network of City Partners to distribute materials and to act as a central contact point for training other educators in the region.

City Partners are made up of nature centers, zoos, museums and others who are dedicated to education about birds, wildlife and the environment. As a City Partner, Black Hill will serve as a leader in training program facilitators in the Flying WILD model, connect educators with Flying WILD trainings and resources, and assist schools with implementing Flying WILD activities to meet environmental literacy goals.
