Project WILD is a wildlife-focused conservation education program for K-12 educators and their students. Project WILD is one of the most widely-used conservation and environmental education programs among educators of students in kindergarten through high school. It is based on the premise that young people and educators have a vital interest in learning about our natural world.

The Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide focuses on wildlife and habitat. It is organized into topic units and is based on the Project WILD conceptual framework. Because these activities are designed for integration into existing courses of study, instructors may use one or many Project WILD activities, or the entire set of activities may serve quite effectively as the basis for a course of study.

Aquatic WILD uses the simple, successful format of Project WILD activities and professional training workshops but with an emphasis on aquatic wildlife and aquatic ecology.

During the workshop participants will receive:
– Project WILD and Aquatic WILD Manuals
– Correlations of Project Wild activities with the Learning Standards/NGSS/Common Core
– Introduction to community resources
– A completion certificate

Who should attend? Middle-school educators, home school educators, nature center staff, youth group leaders –anyone interested in using hands-on activities about birds and bird conservation to encourage learning in science and other subjects will benefit.

Cost: $60 per person, includes book, resources, snacks
