Getting to Know...the Project WILD Annual Conference

KAEE Education Director Brittany Wray attended Project WILD’s Annual Conference in Chico Hot Springs, Montana, in late June, where she and her fellow participants strengthened the Project WILD network as they collaborated, held business meetings, and traveled to Yellowstone National Park for the “WILD in the Field” event.


"We spent a whole day in Yellowstone learning about the educational programs provided by the national park service," Wray said, "and participated in their version of 'Oh Deer,' a beloved Project WILD activity."

The group also learned about the collaboration between the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service to conserve lands for wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and visited the Yellowstone Forever Center to learn about climate, geology, and physical science in the park.
