Project Description: 
Living Classroom provides ecology lessons in 21 native habitat gardens in Mountain View, Los Altos and Palo Alto 1-8th grade classrooms. This program will integrate citizen science data tracking applications, such as iNaturalist and Monarch SOS, into several native ecology lessons, beginning in the 2016-17 school year. The project will also install a dozen or more western bluebird boxes in conjunction with the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society’s Cavity Nester Recovery Program, so students can monitor bluebird boxes during Spring ecology lessons and/or with school garden ecology clubs.
