Kellogg Bird Sanctuary Bus Scholarships 

Our kick-off on #GiveGreenDay and #GivingTuesday was such success our new goal is $2,000 to support even more students!

Teachers and their students can Google “how do birds fly?” or “what makes water roll off a duck’s back?”, but during a field trip to MSU’s Kellogg Bird Sanctuary they will learn about it as they experience it up-close! Bussing costs can inhibit teachers from bringing their students to the Sanctuary. Your gift today will help get students to the Sanctuary, enriching their classroom learning with an interactive field trip.

Students at the Kellogg Bird SanctuaryGive to the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary Bus Scholarships and help send hundreds of K-12 students on a field trip to MSU’s world famous Kellogg Bird Sanctuary!

The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary offers field trips to complement classroom learning. Field trips include Birding BasicsMeet & Greet with live Birds of Prey, and interactions with MSU scientists doing real scientific research during What is a Scientist?.

Each year over 1,500 school-aged children visit on field trips. But there is a capacity for more with your gift today!

What People Are Saying

“… is a wonderful opportunity for ALL students in our class to be enriched by the outdoors and to make things more equitable among students by bringing opportunities to some students that have not previously been able to explore nature in this setting.”

“…thank you for providing the opportunity for students to learn from and interact with nature, letting the students see biology come to life.”

“…a wonderful way to integrate the ‘real world’ into our studies, and Michigan owls in particular.”

”…opportunity to see biology come alive outside the classroom.”

Who We Are
