Amy Williams, fifth grade teacher at Greystone Elementary, was recently awarded a second grant from the Birmingham Audubon Society. The grant she received last year as well as this new grant have given unique opportunities to the students at Greystone.  

Classes are participating in investigative studies throughout the year in the outdoor classroom. Studies include migratory patterns, ecosystem studies, pollutant studies, conservation, and growth studies.

Last school year, the Audubon Society provided native plants for the outdoor classroom that attracted birds. These were planted by the Spain Park football team. Current students were able to see former students give back and care for our planet. Elementary students watered, measured, and cared for these plants and then displayed their research on a bulletin board in the school.  

This school year, the Audubon Society is providing additional bird feeder supplies for native birds and our newest bird of study, the hummingbird. Thanks to the Audubon Society's generous donations, we are hopeful that students and community members will continue to appreciate and care for native birds and their ecosystems. The work done with this project also supports the continued development of Greystone Elementary School’s Outdoor Classroom which is an outdoor classroom with the Alabama Wildlife Federation.
