The Problem

Help our community understand corvids, particularly crows - their intelligence and role in our urban environment.

Our Plan

Our group is going to gain in-depth knowledge about corvids in our community, particularly crows. We want to know how they adapt to urban environments and how they can best coexist with humans and other animals. We would like to share this information with the community at large, but especially youth. We feel that the more connected our community feels to nature, the more they will be willing to care for all aspects of it. Corvids are highly intelligent and easily identifiable birds, making them interesting and highly visible ambassadors for the environment. We will begin by learning from local and other resources with research and field trips and then share this knowledge through community events specifically designed to engage other youth and also through the use of our website and social media.
