CalPIF Education and Outreach Committee
The goals for this CalPIF working committee are to 1) increase awareness
of bird conservation in target audiences; 2) develop consistent,
broad messages and themes as well as more targeted messages for
particular audiences, including K-12 programs, landowner programs,
volunteer programs, agencies; and 3) work on funding opportunities
for CalPIF education. These goals can be accomplished by utilizing
existing education networks, conducting teacher trainings, giving
presentations at local schools, encouraging activities that are
self-supporting, i.e., groups growing native plants for restoration.
If you are interested in participating in this innovative group,
please contact Melissa Pitkin.

and outreach with each other by creating an on-line inventory of
existing education and outreach projects. Please submit a project
description for any existing education and outreach projects using
