Queens' biology and environmental science department to develop eagle migration curriculum
Carolina Raptor Center released a rehabilitated bald eagle recently in celebration of a $15,000 grant given by Duke Energy. The Duke Energy grant will support eagle nesting and rehabilitation efforts, an eagle migration tracking program and the creation of a new fifth grade science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum focused on eagle migration.
As part of the partnership, the Duke Energy supported Eagle Migration curriculum unit will be developed in conjunction with Queens' biology and environmental education faculty and will include a teacher's guide and hands-on activities. Plans are to pilot the program in Gaston and Iredell counties. The program will adhere to Next Generation Science Education standards currently being piloted in 26 U.S. states, including North Carolina.
The Carolina Raptor Center, dedicated to the conservation of raptors, in currently celebrating its 30th anniversary in Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. The Jim Arthur Raptor Medical center treats 900-1,000 birds a year, releasing almost 70 percent back into the wild. The organization's science education programs serve more than 27,000 students a year in formal education settings.
