Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program that focuses on wildlife and habitat. The goal of Project WILD is to develop awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment resulting in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment.
The Project WILD program focuses on educator professional development. Through Project WILD and Aquatic WILD workshops, educators not only receive the curriculum guides but also hands-on instruction on how to bring these activities alive with your students. The Project WILD and Aquatic WILD curriculum guides can only be obtained by attending a Project WILD workshop with one of our coordinators or facilitators.
The program has been around for almost 40 years! In that time more than 1.5 million educators in the United States have participated in Project WILD workshops. Project WILD is great for teachers looking to connect their students to nature and the environment. The curriculum guides are based on educational standards, developed by scientists, and reviewed and field-tested by educators. It is a great resource for any educator!
Attending one of our 6-8 hour workshops is a fun way to learn about the curriculum guides AND earn CE credits! To find a workshop near you contact the Nevada Project WILD Coordinator, Julie Bless at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
