Professional Development Training and Workshops for Educators and Youth Leaders

 

Growing Up WILD

This 3-4-hour teacher workshop presents activities relevant to introducing young learners, ages 3-7, to nature and the outdoors, and introduces the Growing Up Wild manual.

 

Growing Up WILD activities foster critical early childhood skill development, while tapping into children’s sense of wonder about nature and the wildlife around them. Workshop participants usually include k-2 classroom teachers, childcare center staffs and preschool teachers, as well as home school parents and even grandparents.

 

Administered by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Project WILD is sponsored in New Hampshire by the Fish and Game Department and is offered via workshops at locations throughout the state. Workshops can also be scheduled at your site. There is a fee for the workshops.

 

Find an event near you or request a workshop for your school by contacting Lindsay Webb by e-mail or call (603) 271-3212.

Project WILD and WILD Aquatic

Educators, K-12, get the attention of your students by integrating wildlife into your lessons and programs. Project WILD is an international supplementary wildlife education curriculum available to teachers who participate in a 6-7-hour workshop. It is a set of lively, hands-on, diverse and instructionally sound education activities offered in the form of a guide for teachers.

 

Activity-based, Project WILD is a great help in the teaching of conservation and environmental education concepts. Administered by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Project WILD is sponsored in New Hampshire by the Fish and Game Department and is offered via workshops at locations throughout the state. Workshops can also be scheduled at your site. There is a fee for the workshops.

Below Zero

Instead of feeling the winter blahs, introduce your K-12 students to the basics of winter ecology with the help of a variety of fun activities. A supplementary education program that focuses on understanding wildlife in frozen environments. That's certainly the Northeast for several months of the year!

 

Below Zero was created by the Canadian Wildlife Federation and designed to complement the Project WILD activity guide. Like Project WILD, Below Zero activities are both interactive and inter-disciplinary, and target both formal and non-formal, K-12 students. Workshops can also be scheduled at your site. There is a fee for the workshops.
