Project Nightjar

Project NOAH

Project Noah was created to provide people of all ages with a simple, easy-to-use way to share their experiences with wildlife. By encouraging your students to share their observations and contribute to Project Noah missions, you not only help students to reconnect with nature, you provide them with real opportunities to make a difference.

Squirrel Mapper

Students will learn to identify squirrels and begin to record data on the types of squirrels found around them. The students will then be able to record their data on the Squirrel Mapper website and view the observations of people in other locations. This activity can also be used to show how the environment (and humans!) can be used to select which organisms are most “successful”, based on their characteristics.
