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.

Restoring Maine's Meadows Workshop
with Heather McCargo
Location: Gilsland Farm
Members: $30, Nonmembers: $40
Meadows are beautiful and dynamic landscapes that support a wide variety of plants, pollinators, birds and other wildlife. In the last half century in New England, meadows have lost a huge diversity of native plant species with the loss of rural pastures and the expanded mowing brought on by tractor mowers. In this class, we will explore how to create and manage a meadow that supports native plant species. Join Heather McCargo, Executive Director of Wild Seed Project, to learn what it takes to create a native meadow from scratch, how to diversify an existing meadow, or ways to transition a lawn to a meadow. Bring diversity and beauty back into your landscape a native meadow.
