From awareness to action, Project WILD's hands-on approach to learning engages students in investigating the world around them, connecting them to conservation careers, and participating in solid STEM activities. 

The NEW REVISED AND UPDATED  Curriculum and Activity Guide can easily be adapted to meet the learning requirements for academic disciplines ranging from science and environmental education to social studies, math, and language arts.

Educators may choose one or more Project WILD activities to teach a concept or skill. The activities may be integrated into existing courses of study, or an entire set of activities may serve effectively as the basis for a specific course.

WILD workshops are designed so teachers become familiar with the activities and their multidisciplinary use in the classroom.

Workshops:

  • include background information about Maine's wildlife and natural resources
  • provide hands-on WILD experience with activities that address every subject and skill area
  • assist participants with integration of WILD activities into their curriculums.

The activities found in Project WILD curriculum guide are intended for use in both classroom and informal settings.
