Visually Impaired students from Redmond, Crook County, and Bend La Pine Schools schools got the opportunity to get up close and personal with various wild life at Skyliner Lodge in Bend. The Audubon Society was there to share their knowledge on various birds and the sounds they make.  Did you know that the Meadowlark is Oregon’s state bird? Forest Service biologist were also present to share and show information on bobcats, bears, and eagles. Students got to touch various animal skulls, feathers of large prey as well as their talons. A great day for learning in the outdoors!
