We've all moved up a grade since last year, and our work load has definitely changed.  Lately we've all been especially busy, and while burrowing owls were still in the backs of our minds, we haven't really sat down to discuss our project until today.

Because we haven't met for so long, we immediately began working when we walked into the meeting.  Having identified the most feasible venues for spreading awareness about the burrowing owl, we began to create presentation reports.  We chose target schools and populations for our presentations and started coordinating dates and times, finding the available times and dates within our group, assigning schools to each person, and finally, beginning to communicate with the different schools.

Basically, we had liaisons for each school that were in charge of contacting the science teachers and individual grade level teachers for possible times and dates for us to present to the children and staff about our work and the importance of the burrowing owl in our community.  At the same time, we asked about the students' current learning material and agreed that we'd try to customize our presentations so they would relate to the curriculum.
