Wildlife Education

field investigations

Whether you're a teacher an organization or someone who is interested in wildlife, these pages can provide you with a connection to wildlife education. We provide high-quality professional development for teachers, and our school-based programs align with the Next Generation Science Standards. Our resources are available to organizations and schools interested in learning about, or teaching others about wildlife to help sustain healthy wildlife populations in New Hampshire.


Due to a staffing shortage, we will be unable to offer Project WILD Workshops until January 2020. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
