On World Animal Day we also commemorate the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the ecology.
Saint Francis is often depicted with birds, the most fragile of animals. This World Animal Day, the New Jersey Chapter of The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization is unveiling “The Passerine Project” a series of learning programs and creative activities meant to encourage students & adults to take up bird watching activities and look at passerine birds with conservation awareness and artistic curiosity. To encourage educators to participate in this campaign, flyers & infographics will be made available for download at: https://www.laeonj.org/flyers through the end of the year.
Educators interested in creating learning programs should request our PowerPoint Presentation at: https://www.laeonj.org/contact.
To keep track of the interest in “The Passerine Project” please include the hashtag #wciyfp?* on any social media post inspired by this project.
