Education and Research

Education is an important component of the Friends of Ladd Marsh mission. We will add resources to this page as we develop them. Checklists for birds and other wildlife on Ladd Marsh are available on our Resources page.

Learning Kits

Learning kits for use on youth field trips to Ladd Marsh are available.   Teachers may call the Ladd Marsh office (541-963-4954) to reserve the use of these kits on the marsh.  Unfortunately, we cannot loan these materials for classroom use at this time.  Kits may be picked up at Ladd Marsh headquarters on Pierce Road for field trip use.  The following kits are available: Bird Identification, Animal Tracks, Aquatic and Terrestrial Invertebrates, Bird Songs.  Descriptions of these kits are available here.  Please let us know if you have ideas for other kits that we can build, or if you would like to help build new kits!
