Talking Talons Youth Leadership

Talking Talons Youth Leadership is using Nature's Notebook to engage youth in environmental education in a meaningful and productive way. Talking with Talons Phenology Group frequently takes groups of youth on hikes, and field trips and we want to harness the power of youth to fuel citizen science efforts. We enjoy teaching about phenology, forest restoration, and ecological monitoring and we see Nature's Notebook as a way for our youth groups to observe and collect data which can have a direct impact in science. 

Talking Talons staff will be responsible for monitoring, quality of data submissions and scheduling regular visits. Students and volunteers will be guided by Talking Talons staff on how to properly make observations. The area they are observing contains a wide variety of wildlife and a large number of migratory and resident birds. They also plan to monitor a small number of Ponderosa pine trees, and eventually expand to Douglas Fir and White Fir . 

Talking with Talons is also a member of the Rio Grande Penology Trail
