  • Project WILD and Winter Ecology Educator Workshop
    • Friday Feb 10, 2017 8:45 am – 2:30 pm
    • Gilsland Farm
    • Members: $23 - Non-members: $25

    This 6-hour workshop introduces educators to Winter Ecology and Project WILD materials, activities, and strategies. Through hands-on practice, educators gain the experience and confidence needed to work with their students regarding winter ecology and to integrate Project WILD into their teaching.  Participants will learn about winter through outdoor field study and activities and will be able to browse resources including literature connections.

    All participants receive the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide which focuses on wildlife and habitat. It is organized into topic units and is based on the Project WILD conceptual framework. Because these multi-disciplinary activities are designed for integration into existing courses of study, instructors may use one or many Project WILD activities, or the entire set of activities may serve quite effectively as the basis for a course of study.
