SARR offers Vacation Bird School (VBS), a four-day bird study experience for rising 5th-7th grade students during their summer vacation July 10-13, 2017, high in the cool mountains of western North Carolina. Students from Madison, Yancey and Buncombe counties in NC and visiting students from other states will take part in daily expeditions into the Big Bald habitat via the Appalachian Trail to explore the natural history and habitat of bird communities. Activities include literature readings, creative writing, applied arts, nest searching, bird banding and data collection techniques to help see, identify and understand the ecology and birds in the Southern Appalachian mountains.
