It has been a few months since Le Nichoir started offering its programs and seminars online. Despite the original uncertainty of moving to a virtual platform, we are happy to report that so far they have been well received. This is great news for the Centre, as it will allow us to offer education in alternative formats to remote groups and students. Now that the weather is better, we can also offer our programs in person outside, as the pandemic situation allows.
Another great development in our education program is that we have a new version of our Avian Detectives program, tailored to Cycle 3 students. Similar to our original program, which is still available for Cycle 2 students, this version is more suited for older students. Most importantly, it now offers an associated research and engineering project that classes can do before or after the program. The development of this new version of the Avian Detective program and its associated project was supported by the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
