Save Our Special Species Education Program
Save our Special San Diego Species Education Campaign
ECO is working to involve, educate, and activate people by conducting a Save Our Special San Diego Species education campaign. We offer presentations for schools and groups of all ages on keystone species threatened in our region that are present in their own ‘habitat’. In South County, we help children become more aware of Burrowing Owls, Golden Eagles, and quino checkerspot butterflies. In North County, we share about the needs of Bobcats, California Gnatcatchers, and Horned Lizards. We also have presentations on sensitive habitats like Vernal Pools and how to protect them. We use creative activities to encourage hands-on learning such as making a Burrowing Owl stuffed animal, Eagle flag/kite, and Butterfly mask while learning the natural history and challenges faced by these special species.
To learn more, please join our Special Species Education Crew by emailing email@example.com. If you are a teacher, we’d love your help or to come to your class!
RESPECT THE EAGLE – A Save Our Special Species Campaign
The Golden Eagle is one of the most magnificent birds we have in San Diego County. To see a Golden Eagle flying is a rare and lucky sighting as eagles avoid human activity. However, they are an important species in San Diego County and one we want to protect and conserve.
Make your own Burrowing Owl. We have a pattern so that anyone can ‘make’ their own Burrowing Owl to keep them company.
Other Local Species we advocate for:
Quino Checkerspot Butterfly
