Event Detail
April 08, 2013  -  Project WILD and Aquatic WILD workshop for educators

Project WILD is a supplementary education program emphasizing awareness, appreciation and understanding of wildlife and natural resources. This two-day professional development opportunity for teachers, preservice teachers and naturalists will introduce this unique curriculum that teaches young people how to think about wildlife, not what to think. Students learn basic concepts about wild animals, their needs and importance, and their relationships to people and the environment. The hands-on, diverse activities help develop problem-solving and decision making skills in determining responsible human actions. The Project WILD curriculum correlates to Ohioís PreK-12 academic content standards in science, math, language arts and social studies. Beth Theisen from the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District and Dawn Wingate from Ohio State Lima will present this program that was developed through a joint effort of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the Council for Environmental Education. For more information or to register, contact Dawn Wingate. Participants need to attend both the April 8 and April 15 sessions to receive the training guide at no cost.
