Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program emphasizing terrestrial and aquatic wildlife resources. The goal of Project WILD is to assist learners of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment resulting in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment.

Project WILD is available nationwide and provides professional development for formal and non-formal educators. From awareness to action, this hands-on approach to learning engages students in investigating the world around them, connecting them to conservation careers, and participating in solid STEM activities.

Project WILD's mission is to help students learn how to think, not what to think, about wildlife and the environment. All curriculum materials are backed by sound theory and instructional practices representing many fields of education and natural resource management from across the country. The curriculum guides encourage educators to give students opportunities to address contemporary issues knowledgeably, constructively, and responsibly.

 

The three major themes of the curriculum guide are:

  • Ecological Knowledge
  • Social and Political Knowledge
  • Sustaining Fish and Wildlife Populations

During this workshop, participants will learn about Project WILD and sample activities from the Terrestrial and Aquatic guides. Formal educators are able to receive six (6) hour of Professional Learning Credit when they attend a workshop.
