“Three of your boys are pounding on the door and yelling for you to come, they say it’s an emergency!” At her colleague’s warning, Madison elementary school teacher Laurie Solchenberger darted to the playground, expecting the worst. However, she found her students unharmed, yelling and pointing, “Ms. S! It’s a godwit!”
Thanks to Madison Audubon Society’s free, nature-based education, Laurie has been able to ignite her students’ interest–so they can become the next generation of environmental stewards.
