We've Got Books!

Twelve thousand books!  Thanks to a generous grant awarded to the Discover Birds Program by the Tennessee Crane Fund earlier this year, we have just received delivery of 12,000 Discover Birds Activity Books to be distributed throughout the state of Tennessee.  
The Tennessee Ornithological Society (TOS) will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2015 and it is our goal to distribute these books to as many Tennessee educational programs as possible in order to promote excitement and learning about birds.  The books are targeted for Tennessee, but we have also enjoyed sharing books with other states and Cuba!  
TOS member Cyndi Routledge, of Clarksville, coordinates the distribution of books. The only requirement is that the books be used as part of an educational program that includes a bird walk experience introducing children to the birds around them.  Educational programs are also asked to provide a brief description of their activities and photographs that can be shared with others on the Discover Birds Blog.

To make a request for activity books for your classroom or program, contact Cyndi Routledge at

To download and print a copy of the activity book, visit:  The Tennessee Ornithological Society--Educational Resources page.
