Project WILD CoverProject WILD
Project WILD is a national program designed to help educators teach about habitats, ecosystems, adaptations, biodiversity, cultural perspectives, human impacts on the environment, and wildlife management. In addition, Project WILD teaches basic observation skills, problem-solving and decision making skills. This interdisciplinary program teaches learners “how to think, not what to think!” All activities utilize a hands-on approach and asks students to be engaged in their learning.  Activities are geared to students in kindergarten through 12th grades.

The Project WILD guide is available only through attending a Project WILD workshop. (Please see the Upcoming Workshops).

Science and Civics: Sustaining Wildlife
Project WILD's high school curriculum. This high school curriculum guide is designed to involve students in an environmental action project that will benefit the local wildlife community. Science and Civics: Sustaining Wildlife taps into students' desire to be part of a team and into their natural urge to understand, debate, and resolve real-life issues. Working methodically to achieve a positive result, students develop a sense of control and success.

The Science and Civics guide is available only through attending a Science and Civics workshop. (Please see the Upcoming Workshops).

WILD About Elk
Created in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, WILD About Elk provides a summary of the biology and ecology of elk. Topics addressed include physical characteristics and adaptations, habitat and historical range, behavior, life cycles, social structure, migratory patterns, and the present and historical relationships between elk and humans. A primary message woven throughout the guide is the importance of habitat to survival. Activities in the guide assist educators in helping their students learn about elk and their habitat. A resource list facilitates further exploration of issues affecting elk.

WILD about Elk is available through attending a WILD About Elk workshop. (Please see the Upcoming Workshops).
