For Educators: Project WILD Workshop

Saturday, January 25, 2020 | 9 AM - 4 PM

Frances Plecker Education Center

The Project WILD program is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum and materials that focus on wildlife and conservation for all educators — formal and non-formal, pre-K through high school. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) provides in-service training for educators in support of the wildlife related Science Standards of Learning as well as essential skills in math and language arts. Project WILD provides educators with the tools, training and resources needed to engage students in active, hands-on learning about wildlife. The activities in the guides aid in developing students’ critical thinking, problem — solving and decision making skills through the use of cross curricular lessons that can be used individually, sequentially or in units.

Participants attending the workshop will receive a copy of the Project WILD and the Aquatic WILD Curricular Guides and supplementary information on Virginia’s wildlife.
