Bird Species of Leo Politi Elementary School Gallery

In Fall of 2010, Los Angeles Audubon received funding from the TogetherGreen Fellowship Program to integrate science illustration instruction into our environmental education programs. To kick off this new venture, we worked with students from Leo Politi Elementary School to help them create illustrations of the birds they've observed in their Coastal Sage Scrub Habitat Garden on campus . Students attended five after-school illustration sessions where they compared bird anatomy and morphology to that of mammals and insects, studied the work of other natural science illustrators, and spent hours carefully creating their own bird illustrations.

[Also included is the Western Snowy Plover, a threatened species that students have studied for the last two years]
