To schedule a Growing Up WILD workshop, contact your local coordinator today!

You can receive a copy of Growing Up WILD: Exploring Nature with Young Children Ages 3-7  by attending and successfully completing a Growing Up WILD Educator Training. Each training session (minimum of three hours) provides formal and nonformal educators with a comprehensive overview of Growing Up WILD, as well as practical hands-on training in its implementation. 

Growing Up WILD relies on a network of Project WILD Coordinators and Training Partners in each state to distribute materials and to act as a central contact point for training other educators in that state and/or region. Contact your State Coordinator or Training Partner directly via phone or email, or visit their state web site by clicking on their web page link.

Note: "At" is used in place of the @ symbol to avoid any spambots.
