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.
- 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.

Thursday Morning Bird & Nature Walk
with Doug Hitchcox
Location: Gilsland Farm
Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary. We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.
We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow. Walks last approximately 2 hours.
A list of the most recent bird sightings from Gilsland Farm can be found here: ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L251783
