UrbanWatch Curriculum Resources
The UrbanWatch program was developed through a partnership between the Field Museum and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Illinois Natural History Survey, with partial support of EDS. Now through a partnership between the Field Museum and Fernbank Museum of Natural History, UrbanWatch has been modified to support conservation efforts in Atlanta, Georgia.
