Raincoast Field School @ home

“To provide online nature-based learning opportunities for local students.”

Raincoast Field School @ home is an interactive online program delivered by Raincoast Field School instructors, educators and scientists. The program is being created to provide our local students (and beyond!) nature-based programming during COVID-19 related school closures.

Weekly ecology lessons are offered at 11 am PDT on Tuesday and Thursday, and can be joined from a computer, smartphone or tablet. Lessons will be best suited for families with children in Grades K-7. Links to supplementary materials and recorded videos will be posted on the lesson pages below.

The Shorebird migration is peaking like right now!⁠

Last Thursday we were surveying a large flock of shorebirds for our shorebird monitoring project - mostly Western Sandpipers with other species mixed in. Mark was using the scope to count the birds when suddenly a falcon swooped in looking for lunch! The movement of the flock of shorebirds was amazing. They stay in a tight group to help confuse and avoid predators like the falcon. The falcon had a partner waiting above, likely looking for a shorebird to break from the group.⁠
Nature is pretty darn great isn't it!⁠

(We surveyed well over 20 000 birds on this on day alone!)⁠

Tune into Raincoast Field School @ home for Shorebird migration week this week! Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 11 AM⁠
