2021 Educational Outreach Programs

The Marco Island Nature Preserve and Bird Sanctuary presented conservation programs to four kindergarten classes at Tommie Barfield Elementary, five kindergarten classes at Manatee Elementary, the pre-K classes at St. Mark’s Episcopal, and the Marco Island YMCA.  The children learned about protecting wildlife, the significance of Earth Day, and basic conservation practices.  Each child received a 7” stuffed bald eagle at the end of the presentation.  The outreach program was well received by the children and rated excellent by the teachers.

A sincere thank you to Board Member Curt Witthoff and volunteer Kathryn Rogers for their excellent assistance and participation in making this educational program a great success.
