Michigan Raptor Migration Teaching Network

The Michigan Raptor Migration Teaching Network seeks to support K-12 educators in experiencing and sharing the science of raptor migration with Michigan students. We do this by…

  • Curating teaching materials related to bird and raptor migration
  • Bringing educators together to experience raptor migration
  • Coordinating a learning community to develop lessons inspired by Michigan raptor migration and existing data sets
  • Supporting connections between count sites and local schools

Michigan has unique geography, ecology and culture related to migratory birds. The migration patterns of birds of prey are particularly fascinating because of the large hawks, owls and eagles that migrate along Michigan’s shorelines. In K-12 classrooms, there is a current trend to bring place-based examples of environmental importance into lessons. Michigan’s raptor migration ecology is an exciting local example that teachers would be interested to learn more about and use in place-based teaching.
