Questions. . . kids are full of them, and we never tire of hearing them. If it weren't for questions, and the curiosity that inspires them, what kind of story would we tell? How would we engage? What could we learn?

It's the questions presented to us in the classroom and out in the field, by students and community members alike, that let us know our efforts are working. Right away we can see that what we are doing is making an impact. 

 

What students are saying. . .

present_circle7"What I like about the Talking Talons program is being around the animals and learning about them, how they live, what to do if you find an injured one, I think that's really important. Also, how they interact and live with us and how we survive together is interesting to learn."

This YouTube playlist contains many videos highlighting Talking Talons Youth Leadership's role in the Central New Mexico Community!
