How to Receive the Guides

Project WILD's state coordinators and their facilitators (who are trained to lead workshops) conduct workshops (usually six hours long) for educators within their state. The Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide, the Project WILD Aquatic K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide, and Science and Civics Sustaining Wildlife are provided to those who participate in Project WILD Educator workshops.

At these lively and engaging professional workshops, participants are introduced to Project WILD materials, activities, and strategies. Through hands-on practice, educators gain the experience and confidence needed to work with their students and to integrate Project WILD into their teaching.

.

Project WILD workshops vary according to local needs and resources. However, workshops typically include an overview of the program, participation in Project WILD activities, information about the wildlife in your state, and curriculum or program plans for using Project WILD with students. Correlations of Project WILD activities to your state's content standards are generally available upon request.

As a part of Project WILD's commitment to environmental education in general, workshop leaders connect educators to other national and statewide programs, along with resources that offer quality environmental education. Project WILD workshops include information about additional curriculum materials, training opportunities, individuals, agencies, and organizations that serve as resources; and materials about the natural resources and environmental issues within a given state.

Contact your Project WILD State Coordinator for a list of scheduled workshops and registration information.

     
Supplementary Materials

In addition to the basic Project WILD and Aquatic WILD workshops, some states offer advanced workshops for previously trained Project WILD educators. These may include Schoolyard Habitat Design and Development, Facilitating Environmental Action Projects, and WILD About Elk. Advanced workshops may also highlight a particular wildlife species, ecosystem, or issue of the local area.
