The Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies is excited to announce the release of the NEW Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide! This 4th edition of the Project WILD “Terrestrial” guide includes expanded and updated educational methodology and environmental topics. The guide contains six new activities with a focus on the ecology and conservation of bees, bats, reptiles, and monarch butterflies, as well as stewardship activities relating to changing plant and animal life cycle events, and the reduction of light pollution, and includes information on the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. The guide also includes a greater diversity of topics, species, field investigations, and educator resources. Every activity includes an outdoor component, an ‘In Step with STEM’ extension, and ‘WILD Work’ career and occupation extensions. To obtain a new guide, contact your state Project WILD coordinator and schedule a teacher workshop.
“Creating a conservation-literate citizenry that understands how science informs natural resource management is more important than ever and Project WILD helps us achieve this,” stated Elena Takaki, Project WILD Director.
Project WILD is a wildlife-focused conservation education program for Pre K-12 educators and their students and is administered by the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies.
