Outreach and educational programs for K-5 students will be delivered by UTSA faculty and students through the Educating Youth in Environmental Science (EYES) Program.
Curriculum designed around monarch butterflies will engage underrepresented K-5 students in experiences that develop:
- understanding of the natural world
- knowledge of environmental concepts and issues
- the role of the U.S. Forest Service in "caring for the land and serving people"
See information on the Monarch Butterfly Ecology Summer Camp for 3rd-5th graders.
Oh my gosh! Mr. Chavez, we cannot thank you enough for your visit and presentation! My students loved it! I hope we can do this again in the future. What you presented was aligned with the TEKS and made me feel better knowing the kids were getting a lesson they really needed to know. I love that we learned about Monarchs and how we can help. Thank you, thank you again!
