Project WILD Offers Conservation and Environmental Education Programs

John Platt, April 17, 2013

Students from K through 12 can learn about environmental issues with resources from Project WILD.

One of the country's most widely-used conservation and environmental education programs among educators, Project WILD is, according to their website, "based on the premise that young people and educators have a vital interest in learning about our natural world."

The program -- which is available throughout the U.S. thanks to the support of state wildlife agencies -- has a great mission: "help students learn how to think, not what to think about wildlife and the environment."

Educators need to attend one of Project WILD's local workshops, where their curricular materials are distributed for free. The workshops are customized for the environment of each state and address local needs and resources, while also covering the core WILD program.

Supplementary materials may be ordered online by educators, parents, scout groups or anyone else in the public.

For more information, visit the Project WILD website or their YouTube page, where you can view some introductory videos and listen to some infectiously sing-along songs.
