Students were involved in a grant proposal to assist migrating birds. They researched and designed a window cling material and composition that spans a window display on campus (hallway to Darland). The chosen vinyl cling material is incredibly durable, easy to maintain, and greatly reduces the glares and reflections that birds misinterpret. Each section of material was cut and installed by students in the class.
