California Waterfowl’s classroom programs are free! We come to you, bring the materials and present in your classroom.

We teach classrooms about waterfowl and the importance of the habitat they need to thrive. Through it all, we emphasize hands-on, interpretative learning that highlights respect, health and the sustainability of the outdoors.

Depending on the grade level and presentation, students could be learning about nests and nesting behavior. Or they could be learning about ducks by examining real skulls and feet. They could even be studying migratory behavior while examining wing and feather specimens.


Learn all about nests and nesting behavior through hands-on activities in science and art. Look at real nests, build your own and play a game with your special presenter. At the end, learn how to draw your very own duck!
