Project WILD is an environmental education resource program that helps participants develop an awareness, appreciation and understanding of wildlife.
At these lively and engaging professional workshops, participants are introduced to Project WILD materials, activities, and strategies. Through hands-on practice, educators gain the experience and confidence needed to work with their students and to integrate Project WILD into their teaching.
Project WILD workshops vary according to local needs and resources. However, workshops typically include an overview of the program, participation in Project WILD activities, information about the wildlife in your state, and curriculum or program plans for using Project WILD with students. Correlations of Project WILD activities to your state’s content standards are generally available upon request.
By providing teachers with educational tools and partnerships, the Flying WILD program encourages the integration of bird education and conservation activities into the school curriculum in an engaging, successful, and academically purposeful manner. In addition to the Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds, Flying WILD offers training for educators to implement the program in their schools. This approach empowers teachers, students, school administrators and community organizations to tap into the services and resources provided by the network of bird experts, bird organizations, and environmental professionals assisting with the Flying WILD initiative.
The main purpose of the Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds is to provide activities that teach middle-school students about birds, their migration, and what people can do to help birds and their habitats. The Guide’s many activities can be used to teach classroom lessons or to initiate service-learning projects that help birds and their habitats. The Guide helps middle-grade students, teachers, and community volunteers implement a bird festival at their school.
