On Nov. 8, 2013, Alicia King, communication coordinator, Migratory Bird Program, and national coordinator, Urban Bird Treaty Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was a guest speaker at Ross Elementary School. As part of the Student Forums Series, King presented on the topic Birds in Our World to second-grade students. King's presentation focused on birds in North America, why they migrate, their habitats and adaptations.

The mission of the Student Forum Series is to support the classroom curriculum by offering DOI experts to present on topics that foster interest in environmental education, cultural heritage, and connect youth to nature. Experts present on topics that are specific to their respective bureau. Ross Elementary School is a public elementary school in Washington, D.C., that serves students from pre-school through fifth grade.
