Welcome to the homepage of the National Biodiversity Teach-In!
We are the students and teachers of the Environmental Science classes at Elgin High School, and this is our class project. Our Goal is to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity and inspire our participants to take action in it’s protection.
We became passionate about biodiversity through the story of Martha, the last known living Passenger Pigeon who died on September 1st, 1914. Our first #NBTI was organized to honor the significance of Martha’s passing over 100 years ago.
