Education

IRP focuses on three aspects of Iowa raptor

IRP provides both on-site and traveling

populations in order to assess habitat needs and

educational activities. Through our educational

population trends in our native raptors:

programs, we promote an understanding of

• Monitoring winter raptor populations and discerning habitat needs for wintering raptors.

Iowa’s native raptors, their habitats and needs, and hope they inspire an appreciation that can build a foundation of conser vation awareness.

• Monitoring nesting raptor populations and determining habitat needs though urban, suburban, and rural landscapes.

• Monitoring raptor populations to better understand Iowa raptor species of greatest conservation need. 26

UI WILDLIFE CAMPS UI Wildlife Camps began in the summer of 1991 with a mission to awaken awareness, nurture appreciation, and inspire action in our campers for wildlife and their natural habitats. We carry out this mission through hands-on activities because the staff realizes their first-hand experiences played an important role in their passion for the wild! We offer 10 weeks of camps in the summer for ages 4 – 17. We also offer camps during winter and spring breaks. The majority of camps are held at the Macbride Nature Recreation Area. Depending on the camp, locations may include other local natural areas and Recreational Services facilities on campus. Visit recserv.uiowa.edu/wildlifecamps for more information. DNR State Parks UI Wildlife Camps has received 2 Iowa DNR REAP Conservation Education Program grants to bring our program to state parks across Iowa. This year we will be at 14 state parks: Lake Macbride (Solon), Mines of Spain (Dubuque), George Wyth (Cedar Falls), Springbrook (Guthrie Center), Volga River (Fayette), Lake Darling (Brighton), Maquoketa Caves (Maquoketa), Stone (Sioux City), Ledges (Madrid), Walnut Woods (West Des Moines), Big Creek (Polk City), Prairie Rose (Harlan), Waubonsie (Hamburg), and Lake Manawa (Council Bluffs). We plan on being in 20 state parks in 2020 to help commemorate the 100th Anniversary of state parks in Iowa!

SCHOOL OF THE WILD Building on the Wildlife Camps model, School of the Wild was started with a pilot project in 1998 – 1999, funded by a US EPA environmental education grant, as well as an Iowa DNR REAP Conservation Education Program grant. Currently, over 1,200 students spend a week in the fall or spring at School of the Wild, including every sixth grade class in the Iowa City Community School District. Each student receives a hands-on education with experienced teachers and naturalists. The five day long classes during the week are centered on Woodlands, Wetlands, Prairies, Ornithology, and Archaeology. We also work with the University of Iowa College of Education to provide future educators the opportunity to learn how to take teaching outdoors, as every elementary education major has two practicum experiences with us.

LEARNING, CONNECTING, REFLECTING Employment during college helps contribute to student success when meaningful connections between learning in the classroom and learning on the job are made evident. IOWA GROW (Guided Reflection on Work) uses brief, structured conversations between student employees and their supervisors to help students connect the skills and knowledge they are gaining in the classroom with the work they are doing, and vice versa. IOWA GROW is focused on making student employment a "high-impact activity" - one that requires students to reflect on their learning and connect their learning within and beyond the classroom.
